(WRCB) A man who failed to cremate hundreds of bodies in North Georgia is out of prison after 12 years.

Brent Marsh completed his sentence after admitting to theft, abuse of a corpse, fraud and giving false statements.

Marsh was the operator of crematory where more than 300 bodies were found uncremated in 2002.

He sent cement dust to family members instead and was convicted in 2004.

Marsh served 12 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

More than a decade has passed since the tri-state crematory scandal rocked this small community, but the families affected say they feel they’re reliving a nightmare.

Conditions of his probation include finding work and never operating a crematory again.

Some special conditions of his probation include handwriting a letter of apology to all of the families affected, which will be more than 300 letters.

He’ll also have to write letters to the public and the community.
