MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's Attorney General says the former assistant chief of the Autaugaville Volunteer Fire Department has been sentenced on ethics charges.

Attorney General Luther Strange said Wednesday Mack Cell Harmon is ordered to spend 30 days in the Autauga County jail followed by 18 months of probation.

Harmon is also ordered to perform 150 hours of community service, pay court costs, make a payment to the Alabama Crime Victims Compensation Fund and more.

Prosecutors have said Harmon used his official position in 2012 to illegally take a $500 donation intended for the fire department.

The department's former chief and former county commission chairman Danny Chavers pleaded guilty in March to ethics and theft charges. An ethics charge and a theft charge are pending against Ernest Terry Stoudemire, another former department chief.
