PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The owner of a Massachusetts temp agency has been sentenced to six months of home confinement for failing to pay taxes for herself and her employees.

Rossy Noriega was also ordered on Wednesday by a federal judge in Providence to pay back $720,923 in employment and personal income taxes.

The 50-year-old Providence resident pleaded guilty in April to income tax evasion and failure to withhold employment taxes.

Noriega admitted that between 2009 and 2013 she withdrew more than $2.5 million in cash from her Fall River-based company, New Diamond Work. She acknowledged she used some of it to pay employees in cash and failed to pay employment taxes.

Noriega also must serve 18 months’ probation after her home confinement release, and serve 100 hours of community service.
