State Official Convicted and Sentenced

Sentenced to a year in jail but the sentence was suspended and she was placed on a years probation. But, even though the conviction involves her on the job conduct, she remains "on the job" with only a 2 week suspension?


From N&O:
"Dr. Sarah Jean Mason of the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services pleaded guilty Wednesday in Hoke County District Court to impeding an investigation into animal cruelty at a Butterball turkey farm.
She was sentenced to 45 days in jail on two misdemeanor charges, but that sentence was suspended pending a year of probation. Also, the Agriculture Department on Monday suspended her for two weeks without pay."
