BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (AP) -

A former Colorado City fire official accused of misusing public funds has been sentenced to probation.

The Mohave Valley Daily News reports that former Colorado City Fire Chief Jacob Leonard Barlow had pleaded guilty to solicitation of misuse of public money in February and was sentenced Friday.

Authorities a fire district's money was deposited into an unauthorized account and misused for personal purchases.

Barlow's attorney, Bill Porter, says there was no evidence of misuse of public funds and that other fire districts have done the same thing.

Prosecutor James Schoppman says other districts don't use an outside account for personal business.

David William Darger also pleaded guilty Friday to the same charges as Barlow.

Darger is the former secretary-treasurer for the fire district.
