JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- A former Jacksonville police
lieutenant who admitted to stealing $51,000 from a police charity
will spend a year in jail.

Reginald Lott was also sentenced Friday to serve four years of
probation. He told the judge at his court appearance that he felt
shame and hopes he can be forgiven.

The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/ruf2TE ) reports that the
45-year-old admitted to stealing the money while treasurer for the
Brotherhood of Police officers. The nonprofit is made up of about
100 minority police and corrections officers who do local charity
work.

Lott retired after 22 years on the force before he could be
fired. The Times-Union reports Lott will still earn a pension of
about $55,000 a year because his theft did not involve city funds.
