PHOENIX (AP) - A bookkeeper convicted of stealing about $240,000 from her employer in Gilbert has been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says April Mooney also will have to be on supervised probation for seven years.

The San Tan Valley woman was accused of using the stolen funds to pay for personal expenses, dining, shopping and ATM withdrawals at multiple casinos.

Mooney was convicted last month on one count of theft and four counts of fraudulent schemes and artifices. She was facing up to 10 years in prison.

Mooney began working in 2010 as a controller for a construction concrete business. Her responsibilities included handling bank accounts and office administration.

Another employee noticed suspicious charges on the company’s credit card in January 2014 and Mooney was fired.
