JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

David Setzer, the former Director of Finance for Jackson Public Schools has pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges, but won't do any any jail time. He was accused of of stealing more than $25,000. 

As part of the plea deal, Setzer paid full restitution of more that $26,000 and was sentenced to five years probation.

Prosecutors say Setzer devised a scheme in which he created fictitious employees and had their paychecks deposited into his personal account. This occurred over a period of a year from August 2013 to August 2014.

Setzer was employed with Jackson Public Schools from 1996 to 2014.
