Cleveland County Judge Thad Balkman has sentenced a former University of Oklahoma police officer to three years probation for taking nearly $1,900 from the department's evidence room.
Ronald Scott Gibbons, 48, was charged with embezzlement in 2016, stemming from allegations that he had stolen money from OUPD in 2014.
According to a probable cause affidavit, an investigation started after a person, whose case had concluded, came to OUPD headquarters to pick up a computer and $250. The money was nowhere to be found.
Two audits conducted in July 2016 found that several envelopes were missing and tampered with. The envelopes contained $1,873.40, the affidavit read.
An OUPD spokesperson confirmed today that Gibbons is no longer employed with OUPD.
Oklahoma court records show Gibbons received a three-year deferred sentence. That means Gibbons will not to go to prison as long as he follows guidelines set forth by the court. If he fulfills the stipulations surrounding probation, a judge may throw out the sentence and guilty plea, clearing the incident from his record.
However, if Gibbons violates the rules of his probation, he could serve the full-term of his sentence
