The former mayor of Clinton is being sentenced for charges related to obtaining leased vehicles by false representation and malfeasance in office.
Lori Ann Bell was given one-year probation and ordered to pay a compulsory fee of five-hundred dollars for her crimes.
Back in September, Bell and former Clinton Police Chief Frederick Dunn were arrested for their roles in allegedly obtaining leased vehicles by false representation. The two were also accused of collecting 'officer fines' on an excessive basis.
As part of her sentencing, the courts also decided that Bell cannot seek re-election in the future.
