JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Two former law enforcement officers were sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Tom S. Lee for theft of government funds and property.

Zach Robinson, a former Deputy with the Hinds County Sheriff's Office, and Kent Daniels, a former Jackson Police Officer and Investigator for the Hinds County District Attorney's Office, were each sentenced to twelve months in federal prison. They were also ordered to pay joint restitution in the amount of $21,996.00.

In March, 2013, Robinson and Daniels pled guilty to robbing a motel room which they believed was being used by a drug dealer. They took $23,000 and seven iPads which had actually been placed in the room by the FBI.

Former Madison County Sheriff's Deputy Watson Jackson was also charged in the operation. Jackson also entered a guilty plea in March.
