LAS VEGAS, N.M. (AP) - A 63-year-old woman accused of embezzling more than $200,000 from a northern New Mexican mortuary over a three-year period will be sentenced next month under a plea agreement that will keep her out of prison.

The Las Vegas Optic (https://goo.gl/JcT02j ) reports that former Rogers Mortuary employee Molly Martinez pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement last month.

The agreement provides for a nine-year sentence but calls for the sentencing judge to suspend or defer the sentence or to conditionally discharge the conviction if Martinez stays out of trouble.

It also calls for five years of probation and requires Martinez to pay $20,000 in restitution when sentenced plus any other restitution to be determined by probation officials.

In exchange for her guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop a fraud charge.
