( Walton, KY ) - Former mayor of Walton, KY, Phil Trzop, was sentenced to 60 days in jail, Wednesday, after police say he sold scrap metal and then kept a portion of those proceeds.

Trzop pleaded guilty to pocketing money, confessing to having some of it at his home; even buried in his backyard. The former Boone County Water District Manager was indicted in February then suspended without pay.

Boone County authorities are expecting Trzop to begin serving his jail sentence Friday at 6pm.
