HOUSTON (AP) - An employee of Hess Corporation has been sentenced to just more than a year in prison for running up more than $1 million in unauthorized charges to a company credit card.

Monica Causgrove of Lafayette, Louisiana, was sentenced during a court hearing in Houston federal court on Monday.

Causgrove was also ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution.

Investigators say Causgrove used a Hess credit card and her position at the New York-based energy company for charges including a stay at a resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The 43-year-old Causgrove had pleaded guilty last year to wire fraud.

She will remain free on bond until she reports to prison at a later date.
