Both were accused of using a city-issued fuel credit card to make personal purchases.

Cruse pleaded guilty in February to nine counts of abuse of public trust and two counts of complicity to theft. Former City Clerk MaDonna Hornback pleaded guilty to 54 counts of abuse of public trust and two counts of complicity to theft.

The plea agreement called for a probated three-year sentence with 30 days to serve in jail and restitution to the city.
