MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - An Atlantic City employee who stole money that was paid to rent meeting rooms at a city-operated building has been spared a prison term.

Atlantic County prosecutors say William Hadley was sentenced Friday to three years of probation. He also must pay $3,350 in restitution to Atlantic City and will forfeit his job.

The 56-year-old Egg Harbor Township man had pleaded guilty in March to theft by failure to make required disposition of property received. He had been arrested in August 2016 on theft and official misconduct charges.

Authorities have said Hadley accepted money orders from people seeking to rent rooms at the All Wars Memorial Building and deposited the money orders into his personal bank account. But they haven’t said what Hadley did with the money.
