Klotz also was ordered not to gamble while on probation and to attend a gambling addiction program.

Klotz said he already has been getting psychological counseling.

“This was an unfortunate circumstance that could have happened to anybody,” his attorney, Johnson, said after the sentencing. “Mr. Klotz is a fine person, and I don't expect we'll see him in court again. There are a lot of citizens whose safety they can thank him for.”

The FBI in Oklahoma City discovered the embezzlement during an internal audit.

Klotz was a special agent for more than 15 years and was involved in counterintelligence investigations. Klotz resigned from the FBI after being suspended without pay Jan. 10.
