IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A former technology worker at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics has been sentenced to five years of probation after pleading guilty to stealing computers.

The Iowa City Press Citizen reports (https://icp-c.com/1kFV2kp) that Brian Manary told Judge Mitchell Turner on Monday he was sorry for the thefts and was “committed 100 percent to paying restitution back.” He was then sentenced to probation with the possibility of a deferred judgment that would clear his record.

The specific amount of money owed by Manary will be disclosed at a hearing later this year. A state audit released last month found that Manary had sold hospital computers to staffers and friends, costing the institution more than $57,000.

Manary was placed on administrative leave last June and fired about a week later.
