A former state worker who stole money from the commission he worked will not spend any time in prison.

Kimberly Green, Cheryl Yazzie and Charles Countee used phony state vouchers to steal money from the MLK Commission.

Countee pleaded guilty to four counts of embezzlement last month.

In court Monday, Judge Cristina Jaramillo sentenced Countee to four years of supervised probation.

He is also ordered to pay up to $6,500 or restitution.

Countee was also granted conditional discharge, which means the charges will be dismissed if he successfully completes his probation and other requirements.
