FRANKLIN, Texas (AP) - A former Central Texas prosecutor accused of stealing from the estate of a woman who died in 2004 must repay nearly $187,000 and serve 30 days in jail.

KBTX-TV (https://bit.ly/1PbfTwK ) reports ex-Robertson County District Attorney John Paschall (PAS’-kuhl) must surrender Monday at the Brazos (BRAZ’-uhs) County jail.

Paschall on Jan. 21 pleaded guilty to misapplication of fiduciary property. Terms of the plea deal were made public Thursday, when a judge in Franklin ordered repayment to the estate of Marium Oscar of Calvert.

Paschall was the executor. Oscar in 1991 had inherited a sister’s $300,000 estate. Two relatives in 2011 began inquiring about the money .

Paschall must surrender his law license in the plea deal that also includes a suspended five-year prison term and 10 years of probation.
