BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) - The former treasurer of the Cape Cod Kennel Club has been sentenced to six months in jail for stealing more than $62,000 from the organization.

Cynthia Savoia pleaded guilty Thursday in Barnstable Superior Court to falsifying entries into books and larceny of more than $250.

She was sentenced to serve six months of a two-year sentence, with the balance suspended during 10 years of probation for the larceny charge, with a concurrent six-month sentence on the falsifying books charge. She was also ordered to pay full restitution.

The Cape Cod Times (https://bit.ly/1om9tP7 ) reports that Savoia’s attorney said his 43-year-old client experienced financial difficulties after her mother died and was “embarrassed and ashamed.”

The club, which holds dog shows and provides training, is primarily supported through donations.
