JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a 44-year-old Idaho man to six months in the county jail for embezzling more than $150,000 from the Teton County School District in northwest Wyoming.

In addition to the jail time, Judge Timothy Day ordered Anthony Robinson, of Victor, Idaho, to repay $161,000 to the school district and serve seven-year supervised probation term.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1PdBOSv ) that Robinson was contrite, apologetic and emotional during his sentencing this past week.

Formerly the school’s lead bus mechanic, Robinson admitted he used a school district credit card in his name to purchase unneeded bus parts then resold them for his own gain.

He carried out his scheme for roughly three years before one of the companies noticed the scam.
