SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California jury has convicted the wife of a former campus police officer for being an accessory to stealing more than $280,000 from campus parking meters at a community college in Santa Rosa.

The Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/1zbwy9f) Karen Holzworth wiped her eyes as the jury delivered the verdict Wednesday.

The 50-year-old woman faces up to 3 ½ years in prison when she is sentenced March 26.

Her husband, Jeff Holzworth, was sentenced to four years in prison last year for stealing the money from automated machines at Santa Rosa Junior College.

Prosecutors say Jeff Holzworth stole $287,000 over an eight-year period. They say his wife exchanged the bills and coins at banks and that the couple spent the money on vacations, at a casino and on living expenses.
