Nearly two years after a bench trial, a federal judge has found a former Brooks County sheriff guilty of embezzlement and obstruction charges.

U.S. District Judge W. Louis Sands found former Brooks Sheriff Richard Chafin guilty of embezzlement from programs receiving federal funds and misleading conduct/obstruction, according to federal court records released Friday.

Chafin served more than two decades as Brooks County sheriff, from 1987-2008.
