Ex-Des Moines Councilman Gets Probation

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A former Des Moines City Councilman and Polk County supervisor has been given probation for stealing $25,000 from an old friend.

The Des Moines Register reports that Gene Phillips on Tuesday got two years of probation for abusing a dependent adult. Phillips also was given a deferred judgment, which means his record will be sealed if he pays back the money and successfully completes the probation.

Phillips was accused of writing himself an unauthorized $25,000 check from the account of a fellow former Des Moines firefighter, Roger Johnson, in November 2008. The ailing Johnson had given Phillips control over Johnson's accounts.

The 74-year-old Phillips said after his conviction in September that the money was a gift and vowed to appeal the verdict.
