Alabama woman gets prison for stealing from employer
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A federal judge has sentenced an Alabama woman to nearly two years in prison for stealing from the company where she worked as a bookkeeper.
U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town and FBI Special Agent in Charge Johnnie Sharp Jr. said in a statement last week that U.S. District Judge Virginia Emerson Hopkins sentenced 52-year-old Lucy Woods, of Pelham, to 21 months in prison on four counts of wire fraud related to her stealing more than $150,000 from her former employer, Robert Warnock Co. Inc. The company sells capital equipment for the oil and gas industry.
Woods pleaded guilty to the charges in May.
She must report to prison by Nov. 12.
