The district clerk in Robertson County is confirming that former Robertson County District Attorney John Paschall has surrendered his law license after pleading guilty to misapplication of fiduciary property.

The district clerk in Robertson county is confirming that Paschall pleaded guilty to the third-degree felony Thursday morning.

In January 2015, Paschall was indicted by a grand jury for allegedly stealing more than $200,000 from a dead woman's estate.

According to the indictment, the theft occurred from September 1997 to August 2010.

Marium Oscar died in 2004, and Paschall is the executor of her estate.

As a result of the guilty plea, Paschall can no longer practice law,

must serve 10 years probation, and must report to the Brazos County jail by February 8 where he must serve 30 days, according to the Robertson County district clerk and the Texas Attorney General's Office.

He must also pay restitution and perform 100 hours of community service.

A hearing to determine that amount is scheduled for February 4 in Robertson County.
