OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A former FBI agent from Oklahoma has been sentenced to six months in federal prison after pleading guilty to embezzling from a fund used to pay confidential informants.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Texas says ex-FBI Special Agent Timothy Klotz of Yukon was sentenced Monday to six months in prison and six months of house arrest.
Klotz also agreed to pay the FBI more than $43,000 in restitution. He's scheduled to surrender to prison officials on Jan. 18.
The 45-year-old KIotz pleaded guilty in July to one count of embezzlement of public money.
Defense attorney Michael Johnson has said Klotz has taken full responsibility for his actions.
