The city manager of the polygamous community of Colorado City, Ariz., has been put on probation for misusing public money.
The Kingman Daily Miner reported this week that David Darger was sentenced to 3 years on supervised probation.
Authorities have said the fire district’s money was put into an unauthorized account and used for personal purchases. Darger, who previously served as secretary-treasurer of the fire district, was charged alongside former fire chief Jacob Leonard Barlow in an Arizona court. Both pleaded guilty and received probation. However, the Miner reports, Darger remains city manager and enjoys the community’s support while Barlow was banished from the town.
Colorado City, along with Hilldale, Utah, comprises a community dominated by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
