OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska woman has been ordered to pay nearly $57,000 in restitution and spend a dozen consecutive weekends behind bars for filing fraudulent federal tax returns.

Federal prosecutors also say Magalita Gelin on Monday was sentenced to five years of probation that includes eight months of home confinement.

The prosecutors say that between February 2009 and August 2010, Gelin and Joshua Miles filed bogus returns for several people who went to couple’s home in Bellevue. The tax returns claimed refunds totaling more than $111,000.

Miles also has been convicted and is awaiting sentencing on June 19.
