LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – A former Louisville Metro employee will avoid jail time after pleading guilty to two counts of burglary.

Kevin Chapman, who was charged with stealing copper piping from vacant buildings in Dec. 2014, pleaded guilty Thursday morning.

He was charged with two counts of burglary, official misconduct and possession of burglary tools.

Chapman was sentenced to five years for both counts of burglary and one year for each other charge. However he was placed in the diversion program, which will allow him to avoid serving his sentence if he adheres to the guidelines of the program.

Chapman has also been ordered to perform 150 hours of community service work.
