The Nashville mayor resigned earlier today after she pleaded guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from the city in connection with an extramarital affair with Forrest, her bodyguard.
According to The Tennessean, the two were often partaking in domestic and global travel for work, which led Forrest to rack up $33,000 in expenses and $50,000 plus in overtime in 2017 on top of his $84,500 salary. Barry wished him and others well as she resigned.
Her plea deal requires Barry to serve three years of probation and repay the city $11,000.
According to The Tennessean, Forrest has also pleaded guilty to theft of property over $10,000.
In a statement, Barry said while her time as "mayor concludes today", her "unwavering love and honest affection for this wonderful city and its great people shall never come to an end".
Barry, 54, was riding high when news broke in late January that she had been having an affair with Forrest.
The revelation of the affair led to an investigation, which found probable cause that a nude photo and partially nude photo of a woman found on Forrest's work cellphone were taken while he was working and the two were engaging in their relationship while he was on duty.

The last Nashville mayor to leave office before their term expired was in 1923 - decades before the formation of Metro government - when Mayor Felix Z. Wilson was kicked out of office by the Nashville City Council.
Her resignation means Vice Mayor David Briley will take over as mayor.
Davidson County Criminal Court says Nashville Mayor Megan Barry is expected to appear in criminal court Tuesday morning. Among the evidence cited by TBI was nude photos of a woman taken from Forrest's phone.
In January, Barry said she and Forrest are no longer seeing each other.
Barry routinely traveled without security before June 2016, records show. Forrest, who had spent more than 31 years with Metro Nashville Police and supervised the mayor's security detail over three administrations, has retired.
According to the news outlet, the mayor's legal team was reportedly involved in negotiations with the local district attorney.
Barry has been considered a rising political star, and the disclosure comes at a fraught time for her.
