The settlement is identical to the original plea agreement proposed at an Oct. 25 hearing, which Court Commissioner Kirkland Nyby rejected as too lenient.
Nyby said at the October hearing that the settlement was out of proportion with the offense, after the investigator in the case, adult Scout member Dorothy Black, told the court that the well-documented case against Elliot revealed that funds were missing beyond the amount indicated in the indictment.
But Judge Patrick Hegarty accepted the terms of the first agreement Tuesday, citing Elliot's lack of a criminal past.
"The defendant is a 44-year-old with a family and no criminal record," he said. "She has made significant effort to repay up to this point and I feel that probation is appropriate in this case."
Elliot has repaid $7,800 of the stolen funds, with $2,283 outstanding, Black said.
Elliot's attorney, Vahe Hovanessian, declined to comment about whether he was satisfied with the settlement, nor the details of his discussion with Hegarty in court chambers, which rendered a return to the original agreement.
Parents and leaders of Troop 210, some who were in attendance at Tuesday's hearing, expressed frustration at the court's change of position.
"I don't think it was a fair judgment," Scout parent Janna Skovinki said.
"But I know there's a higher power, that she'll get hers. I trusted her totally. But when she takes money from my kids, that's where I draw the line."
Other Scout officials were inclined to move beyond the incident in the wake of the settlement.
"Certainly the courts have heard the case and they've made their judgments," Scout executive Jon Maeda said.
"It's something we have to live with and naturally we respect what the court's decision is."
