A former Montgomery County Jailer was sentenced to federal prison Friday for misappropriating thousands of dollars belonging to the county government during his tenure.

U.S. District Judge Karl Forester sentenced Everett Dewayne Myers, 51, to five months in prison to be followed by five months of home incarceration for the offense of theft from a county agency that receives federal funds.

Myers paid $66,989 in restitution at Friday's sentencing representing the amount of county money he misappropriated.
Myers previously acknowledged that between July 2007 and July 2008 he engaged in a kickback scheme with jail vendors.

The jail vendors created invoices for exaggerated or bogus services at Myers’ direction. Myers paid the vendors for the services listed on the invoices with jail funds and then received a portion of the money from the vendors.

Myers waived his right to be charged via a federal indictment and pleaded guilty in March to a charge brought directly by the U.S. Attorney.
