URBANA, Ill. (AP) - An eastern Illinois woman will go to prison after admitting she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from an Urbana company.

According to The News-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1lzxxNV), a federal judge in Urbana on Wednesday sentenced 44-year-old Karyn E. Graham of Tuscola to 33 month in prison. She pleaded guilty to wire fraud and filing a false tax return last September.

According to Graham’s plea agreement, she stole more than $343,000 from Shaff Implement and Shaff Machinery Co. between 2006 and 2010. She was Shaff’s accounting manager.

U.S. District Judge Michael McCuskey also ordered Graham to pay $446,451 in restitution. Of that amount, $103,000 is unpaid taxes.

Graham will remain free while she has knee surgery. A hearing is set for July 24 to determine when she can report to prison.
