McDaniel was also ordered to pay $1,000 in restitution to the Fayette County Sheriff's Office.

Bill Beers, who returned guns he had confiscated from domestic violence cases, was sentenced to 60 days home incarceration.

According to the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, one of the guns McDaniel pawned was never recovered.
