ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The former comptroller of an Albuquerque construction company has been sentenced to 4 ½ years in federal prison after being convicted of fraud and identity theft.

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Stephanie Pyle also was ordered to pay more than $2.4 million in restitution to the victims.

Pyle got a 30-month prison term on the fraud conviction and a consecutive 24-month sentence for the aggravated ID theft conviction.

She was indicted in the case in February and pleaded guilty to two of the 12 counts in May.

Pyle was accused of using credit cards and account numbers in her employer’s name without authorization between January 2010 and May 2014.

Prosecutors say she also obtained a credit card in her name that was linked to the account of the construction company’s co-owner.
