    A Washtenaw County probation officer who was accused of lying to investigators about the shooting death of a 20-year-old man in Ypsilanti has avoided jail time in the case.

    The Ann Arbor News reports Sarah Stein was sentenced to 1 1/2 years of probation on Tuesday. She quit her job in December before she pleaded guilty to a felony count of lying to a peace officer and a misdemeanor count of lying to a peace officer.

    Stein's former job involved enforcing probation sentences. She apologized, telling the court she was "embarrassed and ashamed of my behavior."

    The 40-year-old Stein was charged after an investigation revealed that she'd lied about a former juvenile probationer who is now in prison for the 2015 gang-related slaying of 20-year-old Keandre Duff.
