EATON COUNTY, MI (WLNS) – A former Eaton County Sheriff’s Department Corrections officer lost his State of Michigan corrections officer certificate and will now spend a month in jail because of $87.

Allan Coker, 43 pleaded guilty to embezzlement by a public official back in March.

He admitted to taking small amounts of cash from inmate’s personal property when they were going through the booking process.

Coker told investigators he had been doing this since 2012.

The only confirmed thefts officials found added up to $87, which he now has to pay back in restitution. He’ll be on probation for two years and have to complete 100 hours of community service.
