A former aide to Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) was sentenced in District court to 32 hours of community service for allegedly stealing from a House office building on Capitol Hill.

Javier Sanchez, a 37-year-old former senior legislative aide, was arrested in July after Capitol Police set up a sting operation with a hidden surveillance camera in one of the offices at the Rayburn building.

After pleading "not guilty" to the misdemeanor theft charge last month, Sanchez reached a deferred prosecution agreement with the government in court. A spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's office says if Sanchez meets several conditions, including the community service, the charge will be dropped.

A follow up hearing is scheduled for late December.
