MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former clerk for a Memphis country club has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for defrauding the club of more than $700,000.

The U.S. attorney’s office for West Tennessee says 58-year-old Sue M. Winfrey was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Memphis.

Winfrey, a former payroll clerk at Chickasaw Country Club, pleaded guilty in January to wire fraud in connection with a scheme to defraud.

Prosecutors say Winfrey would submit false payroll data to Chickasaw’s payroll processor, Paychex of New York. She received about $736,000, which was deposited electronically into her bank accounts.

Winfrey also was ordered to pay $486,000 in restitution to the country club and in the amount and $250,000 in restitution to Traveler’s Indemnity Company.
