CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A woman accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from her employer and from the Sheridan chapter of Trout Unlimited has been sentenced to four years and three months in prison.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Wednesday (https://goo.gl/dd0szm ) that 37-year-old Alecia Bolton was sentenced for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. She also must pay $86,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say Bolton stole about $63,000 from Cedars Health Clinics, where she was the accounts receivable manager, between February 2014 and last April. She also stole about $23,000 from Trout Unlimited, where she was a volunteer treasurer.

Bolton is accused of writing unauthorized checks and forging signatures to conceal the fraud. Prosecutors say she also stole patient payments intended for Cedars Health by transferring and depositing the payments into accounts she controlled.
