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.
