LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Federal prosecutors say former McMahan fire chief Paul Barth had the money to repay what he stole from the Crusade for Children as late as one month ago -- but he didn't tell authorities about it.
So the U.S. Attorney's office wants to keep Barth from leaving the state until he goes to prison. He's now awaiting word on when and where to report.
On Monday, a judge sentenced Barth to 41 months and ordered him to repay more than $198,000 to the Crusade and the fire department.
The prosecutors say they didn't know that Barth sold a Florida condominium for more than $470,000 cash in September, and then paid more than $266,000 in cash, for a house in Louisville in October. That was financial information Barth should've given to federal probation authorities and to prosecutors, U.S. Attorney David Hale said.
Hale also said Barth should have paid restitution first.
"It is deplorable that after admitting guilt and even asking the public for forgiveness, Mr. Barth still put his personal interests ahead of his victims," Hale said in a news release.
"By doing so, he has turned his back, once again, on his victims, delaying repayment of the monies he stole from him," the motion for restrictions said. It was filed late Wednesday. It will be at least Monday before a judge can schedule a hearing.
Barth gave prosecutors a note and mortgage for the restitution on Friday afternoon -- which was the plan for restitution as described during his sentencing hearing Monday.
