POLK COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Polk County woman is sentenced to prison for making a forged security related to stealing checks.
Friday, a judge sentenced 41-year-old Sarah McKenzie of Luck to one year and one day in federal prison.
Her sentence will be followed by two years of supervised release.
According to the Department of Justice, McKenzie pleaded guilty to the charge in October.
The DOJ said in 2016, employees at Core Products International in Osceola noticed duplicate check numbers written by McKenzie with a forged signature of the CEO.
The investigation shows during a 10-year period, McKenzie wrote more than 300 checks to herself or to cash for an amount of more than $291,000.
Bank records show the majority of the stolen money was spent at casinos and psychic hotlines.
