A former Berrien County deputy is sentenced to 30 days in jail.

This, after being accused of embezzling money from the Niles Wrestling Club.

The former deputy, Trent Babcock, pleaded guilty to false pretenses last month, after being accused of taking more than $11,000 in the last five years.

He was originally charged by the Berrien County Prosecutor’s Office for felony embezzlement.

Now, he is sentenced to 30 days in jail, two years’ probation, along with paying $2,445 in fines and costs and $4,800 in restitution.

The remaining $6,464.31 in restitution will be argued during a separate hearing.
