SAN ANTONIO -- A local lawyer who embezzled half a million dollars won't be spending any time in jail.

Attorney Michelle Valicek pled guilty to spending more than $500,000 of an inheritance meant for her grandmother.

She was charged with misappropriation of property after stealing more than $1 million from her grandmother's and father's inheritance.

About $500,000 has been accounted for but the rest has not. On Tuesday Valicek gave up her law license.

The prosecutor asked for 20years in prison, but Valicek was given deferred adjudication and no fine.

Valicek's father is not filing charges or asking for reimbursement of the remaining $500,000.

Valicek has previously been arrested for drunk driving.
