Keith Pfautz pled no contest on Nov. 4 to two counts of felony theft from the Hesston Lions Club according to County Attorney David Yoder.
Yoder said as part of Pfautz’s plea, he has been ordered to pay $10,000 restitution to the Hesston Lions Club. Sentencing has been scheduled for Jan. 9, 2015 at 1 p.m.
Yoder said the plea was “pretty standard.” Yoder added Pfautz will most likely be facing 12 months supervised probation.
“He, not having any kind of criminal history, will most likely be on presumptive probation per sentencing guidelines.
“This is a property crime with no criminal history and a member of the community. There are consequences, however, they presume the emphasis is on rehabilitation and to prevent recidivism,” said Yoder.
Herald Shorn with Harvey County collections, said Pfautz will not be making payments directly to the Lions Club.
