KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The former director of a home for the disabled in northwest Missouri was sentenced to three years and one month in federal prison without parole for embezzling more than $300,000 from the organization.

Federal prosecutors announced Friday that 51-year-old Terri Arlene Marr, of Warrensburg, also was ordered to pay $317,544 in restitution for money she took from the Progressive Alternative Living organization in Higginsville. She was director of the home from 1991 through 2013.

Marr pleaded guilty in April to two counts of theft.

Marr admitted that she used PAL credit cards and money to pay personal expenses, and also issued payroll checks to a person who did not work for the organization.
