DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas woman who received more than $60,000 in college financial aid but never finished any online courses must serve more than two years in prison.

Sussette Sheree Timmons was convicted last year on six counts of financial institution fraud.

Prosecutors in Dallas say the 42-year-old Timmons enrolled via the Internet for online studies and had financial aid applied to her tuition or checks were sent to her. She withdrew from more than a dozen colleges or universities since 2009.

Timmons received financial aid from New Mexico State University, Western New Mexico University, Ashford University, Northern New Mexico College, Coconino Community College and Pima Community College.

Timmons was sentenced Friday.
