Slocomb's former city magistrate pled guilty to first-degree theft of property in a Geneva courtroom.
Last June, Patsy Barron was arrested for allegedly stealing around $10,000 dollars in traffic ticket fine money paid to the city.
Prior to being appointed magistrate, the 38-year-old served as a Slocomb Police dispatcher.
Following her guilty plea, Barron was sentenced to five years in prison.
That sentence has been put on hold pending the outcome of a probation hearing.
