AUGUSTA, Kan. (AP) _ The former director of a southeast Kansas Chamber of Commerce has been sentenced to a year's probation for stealing more than $13,000 from the organization.

The Butler County Times-Gazette reports that Kent Overaker must also pay full restitution and write a letter of apology under the sentence he received this week.

Overaker was hired as director of the Augusta Chamber of Commerce in March 2012. He was arrested last August after chamber officials noticed discrepancies in the organization's finances.

He pleaded guilty in December to felony theft, admitting that he stole $13,400 in a four-month period by using the chamber's credit cards and checks for personal expenses.
