Ex-Prison Employee Gets 21 Months For Embezzlement
U.S. District Judge Sue Myerscough sentenced 47-year-old Mary Ann Bohlen on Monday.
Myerscough also ordered the Edinburg resident to pay nearly $24,000 to the Illinois Correctional Employees Memorial Association and $27,000 to the state corrections agency.
Bohlen - a corrections accounting administrator - pleaded guilty in February to embezzling money from department funds from 2007 to 2011.
Bohlen admitted taking more than $50,000 from the memorial association. It recognizes and commemorates employees severely injured or killed in the line of duty.
