It’s unclear exactly what funds were stolen, but the investigation focused on travel expenses and overtime incurred while Forrest was on duty at the time of their affair. Nude photos of a woman taken during his time on duty were also found on Forrest’s phone.

Also on Tuesday, Forrest plead guilty to the same felony theft charge and agreed to reimburse the city $45k that was paid to him as salary or overtime when he was not performing his ~official duties~. Both parties were sentenced three years probation.

Apparently, the affair (which is said to have begun in the spring of 2016) is now over. Watch Barry’s press conference announcing her resignation (above)!
