Former Dover Mayor Richard Homrighausen will not go to prison after being found guilty for Theft in Office and other charges.

In a Tuscarawas County Court room, Homrighausen learned his fate on Tuesday.

Homrighausen must pay over $17,000 in audit costs, fees and restitution for performing weddings but not turning the fees over to the city.

The prosecutor from the state auditor’s office asked for that sentence.

Homrighausen maintains he is innocent and his attorney says he’ll appeal, according to a report from WHBC.

He also can never hold public office again because of the felony theft in office conviction. As part of the sentence, he will also avoid probation.
