Leesburg- Attorneys for former deputy Donnie Spillers don't plan to appeal his conviction. Spillers says he just wants to put the last year behind him and move on. Spillers was convicted yesterday of lying to investigators and violation of oath of office.

He was sentenced to five years probation. Judge Rucker Smith said the facts and circumstances of this case determined his sentence. He explained his decision to those in the courtroom.

"Because Mr. Beaver's gone and will never be back with us, Mr. Spillers is never going to be the same either, and I really don't know that there's anything I can do to Mr. Spillers, that's work than anything he's already done to himself," said Judge Rucker Smith.

Donnie Spillers was also ordered to complete 400 hours of community service,and undergo mental health counseling and treatment.

Donnie Spillers could have his criminal record wiped clean because he's a first offender.

First offender status is only available to someone who has never been convicted of a crime. If Spillers completes five years of probation with no problems, there will be no record of the conviction.

"Once your indicted for something that indictment never comes off your criminal history for law enforcement purposes, for job purposes and public information purposes once his completed his first offender sentence it comes off that GCIC," said Cecelia Cooper, District Attorney.

To complete his probation, Spillers must routinely report to a probation officer, undergo special alcohol and drug testing, and consent to random searches of his person and his home.
