MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) - A 54-year-old Culbertson woman has been given 18 to 36 months in prison for embezzling more than $814,000 from a livestock auction company in McCook.

The McCook Gazette (https://bit.ly/1UpR6Hj ) reports that Trina Hoyt was sentenced on Monday in Red Willow County District Court. On June 1 she’d pleaded guilty to one count of theft.

Hoyt was accused of writing 26 unauthorized checks on Tri-State Livestock Commission Co. accounts between January 2012 and December 2013 and depositing them into her own accounts.

Her former employer says Hoyt took more than $1.2 million between 2010 and 2013. Investigators did not include 2010 and 2011 in their probe, because of the statute of limitations.
