Two former redevelopment agency officials who embezzled funds must repay $435,000 to the City of San Diego but they will not spend time behind bars.
SEDC oversees taxpayer-sponsored development in San Diego's southeastern neighborhoods. Smith is the former president, Dayacap the former financial director.
Prosecutors said the two received more than $800,000 in illegal bonuses during a five-year period.
Prosecutors asked for a year in prison for each defendant and a combined restitution of $700,000.
At a hearing Friday, Smith was given a one-year suspended sentence and ordered to perform 360 hours of community service. Dayacap received a nine-month suspended sentence and must serve 240 hours of community service.
Both are responsible for the $435,000 in restitution.
According to our media partners at the voiceofsandiego, the pair will repay at a rate of $100 per month which comes to $1200 each a year.
If they follow that payment schedule, the money will not be repaid until the year 2193 the news website reported.
