For­mer Henry County com­mis­sioner Rich Myers was sen­tenced on Thurs­day in Henry County Court to one year of com­mu­nity con­trol and 100 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice for his role in hav­ing an unlaw­ful inter­est in a pub­lic con­tract.

Myers was found guilty of the felony which stemmed from meet­ings in 2009 between Myers and designer Peter Col­lo­rafi, CEO of Revenge Designs. Inves­ti­ga­tors say Myers deliv­ered two checks total­ing $300,000 for an eco­nomic devel­op­ment loan to Col­lo­rafi to build a fac­tory in Henry County. The $300,000 was never repaid by Col­lo­rafi and the county used money from the gen­eral fund to replace it.

Prior to deliv­er­ing the checks, Myers pro­vided Col­lo­rafi with a $25,000 unse­cured per­sonal loan to assist with financ­ing for the project.

Col­lo­rafi has never repaid that loan either.
