NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a Waggaman woman to a year and a day in prison for embezzling over $200,000 from her employer.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite said Thursday that U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier also ordered 59-year-old Delores Trouillet to pay restitution in the amount of $208,082 to the victim. Trouillet previously pleaded guilty to wire fraud for embezzling the money.

According to court documents, from 1999 to 2014, Trouillet worked for a carpet, flooring and drapery sales and installation company in Gretna as a bookkeeper. Using her access to the company’s accounts, authorities say she stole money in several ways to pay her personal expenses.
