    Woman gets prison for embezzlement

    BRATTLEBORO A Vermont woman has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for embezzling more than $80,000 from the Algiers Fire District.

    Federal prosecutors say 52-year-old Sherry Roebuck of Guilford worked as a treasurer for the district between 2007 and 2011.

    Roebuck was accused of writing checks to herself and cashing them at local banks. Prosecutors say the embezzlement was discovered in March 2011, shortly after she resigned.

    A jury found her guilty.

    The Brattleboro Reformer reports as part of her sentence, Roebuck has to pay the money back.
