A former Redondo Beach police officer was sentenced Monday to three months in County Jail after pleading guilty to embezzling more than $70,000 from a police officers association, authorities said.

Glen Tomatani, 40, was also sentenced to three years probation and one year of Gamblers Anonymous, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said. He will begin serving his jail sentence April 20. He pleaded guilty last month.

Tomatani could have received up to four years in state prison, the district attorney said in December when charges were filed.

Tomatani was president and treasurer of the Redondo Beach Police Officer’s Assn. He embezzled $72,388 from the group between May 2004 and May 2008, prosecutors said. He also embezzled $3,000 from the city of Redondo Beach, according to prosecutors.

Tomatani paid $75,388 in restitution before his sentencing, the district attorney said. He was relieved of duty in November 2008 when the funds were discovered missing. He resigned from the department in October 2009.
