Former Arizona legislative aide sentenced to probation

PHOENIX -- A former Arizona legislative aide has been placed on probation on a wire-fraud conviction stemming from the diversion of more than $130,000 from a legislator's campaign account.

John Rowland Mills was sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge James Teilborg.

The judge last week threw out eight of nine wire-fraud convictions against Mills.

Mills took the money from then-House Speaker Jim Weiers' 2008 re-election campaign account but returned it just before the election. The conviction for that final wire transfer stands.

Teilborg ruled that the previous eight wire transfers were not necessary for the long-term perpetration of the fraud but instead were for personal expenses and investments.

Mills worked for majority House Republicans before resigning in May 2012.
