CORTEZ, Colo. (AP) - A former Montezuma County undersheriff accused of using taxpayer money to pay for personal items, including firearms, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

The Cortez Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1gJcyqY ) Robin Cronk was sentenced Friday. He pleaded guilty in March to a felony count of embezzlement and a misdemeanor count of official misconduct.

As part of the plea deal, Cronk was allowed to choose a detention center other than the Montezuma County jail because of safety concerns and conflicts of interest with local authorities. He will serve his sentence in the Mesa County Jail.
