NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man who was supposed to buy land for the state is headed to prison after pocketing the money.

Michael Young, formerly a contract agent who was supposed to purchase right-of-ways for the Tennessee Department of Transportation, was sentenced to two years in prison for stealing nearly $1 million.

Investigators said he used the money for personal expenses, then covered it up when TDOT gave him additional money for more property.
