Nashville Mayor Resigns After Pleading Guilty To Theft

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry resigned Tuesday morning after pleading guilty to theft of property over $10,000.

Barry appeared in criminal court and entered into a conditional plea, agreeing to reimburse the city $11,000. Barry will also receive three years unsupervised probation. 

Vice Mayor David Briley will now be sworn in as mayor later today. 

Megan Barry made history as the first woman elected as mayor of Nashville. Barry is the first mayor to leave office since the death of Mayor Hilary Howse, after serving almost 15 years in office.
