ALLISON, Iowa (AP) - A former Butler County supervisor convicted of theft in a plea deal has been given probation and ordered to pay back nearly $1,900.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says (http://bit.ly/1RkkSJb ) Mark Reiher was given a deferred judgment Wednesday and a year of probation. Under a deferred judgment, Reiher’s conviction will be removed from his record if he completes probation.

Reiher was defeated for re-election in 2014. While on the county board Reiher had seats on boards for the North Iowa Juvenile Detention Center and the Butler County Solid Waste Commission and attended meetings for Rural Iowa Waste Management in Eldora.

Authorities allege Reiher collected mileage for meetings he didn’t attend and twice billed the county and the detention board for the same meetings.

He characterized the errant mileage filings as oversights.
