ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A woman who used her job at an Aspen credit union to steal tens of thousands of dollars from customers has been sentenced to more than three years in a halfway house.

The Aspen Daily News reports (https://goo.gl/sDEezQ ) 42-year-old Jessica Sorensen was sentenced Monday for forging signatures for cash withdrawals and transfers from her own account from September 2012 through July 2013. She was accused of stealing nearly $60,000.

The three-year delay between her arrest and sentencing happened because she went to California for substance abuse and mental health treatment and did not return until she was arrested.

The victims included former Aspen Mayor Mick Ireland and former Marble Mayor John Anthony Petrocco.
