Former Davenport Mayor Gets Probation for Theft
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — Former Davenport Mayor Pat Gibbs has been sentenced to three years of probation for stealing thousands of dollars from a pawn shop where he worked.
The Quad City Times reports that the 53-year-old Gibbs received a deferred sentence Thursday in Scott County District Court. If he violates probation, the deferred judgment will be revoked and he could face up to five years in prison. But if he successfully completes probation, the case will be stricken from his record.
Gibbs pleaded guilty last month to theft for stealing almost $10,000 from his employer, Del-Rich pawnshop, in Davenport.
Gibbs was mayor of Davenport for six years, from 1992 to 1998, and served as a Scott County supervisor from 1998 to 2002.
