MERIDIAN — A Lauderdale County woman has been sentenced to 10 years in prison with three suspended for embezzlement from a local lumber company.
Anne Marie Neal pleaded guilty in May to embezzling $231,000 from Stallworth Lumber Company. Prosecutors say she took the money between Jan. 2000 and Dec. 2008 while working as a bookkeeper.
She was sentenced Wednesday in Lauderdale County Circuit Court.
District Attorney Bilbo Mitchell tells WTOK-TV that Neal was placed on five years probation after she is released and was ordered to make restitution.
