MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A sentencing date has been set for a woman who pleaded guilty to using her company’s airline points to book tens of thousands of dollars’ worth domestic and international travel for herself, relatives and friends.

AL.com reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1wGfVoH ) that a U.S. District Court judge is scheduled to sentence Courtney du Plessis Jan. 16. She pleaded guilty to fraud in September.

Authorities have said du Plessis worked as a travel coordinator for the Austal USA shipbuilding company and used its Delta Air Lines reward points to book personal travel. Court records say the value of the tickets du Plessis booked totaled more than $56,500.

Authorities have said the company never gave du Plessis permission to use the points, and doesn’t allow employees to use those benefits at their discretion.
