BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A former Idaho rodeo queen who admitted embezzling more than $22,000 from her employer has been ordered to spend six months in jail on work release.

KTVB-TV reports (https://is.gd/I3xY82 ) that 23-year-old Chelsi Ann Horton had a seven-year prison sentence suspended Monday, with Judge Deborah Bail ordering Horton to spend six months in jail instead. The woman was also allowed into a work release program, in which she’ll be able to work each day and return to custody at night.

Horton pleaded guilty to grand theft in November.

The Miss Caldwell Night Rodeo Queen and former Boise State University Bronco girl was arrested in late July. She later admitted to paying herself more than her salary while working as a bookkeeper for King Concrete in Nampa.

Prosecutor Kai Wittwer says Horton was ordered to pay more than $22,000 in restitution to her former employer.
