CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A former West Virginia hotel employee has been sentenced to two years and six months in federal prison for embezzling more than $955,000.

U.S. Attorney Carol Casto says in a news release that 53-year-old Mark Kuhn of Milton was sentenced Monday in federal court in Charleston for wire fraud.

Kuhn worked for the Charleston Marriott Town Center as an accountant and general cashier, including collecting cash from the hotel’s gift shop, front desk, and restaurant and bar.

He admitted embezzling from the hotel from 2005 through February 2016 and posted false entries in the hotel’s accounting system. The funds were used for personal expenses, including a cruise to Cozumel, Mexico, and numerous vacation trips.

In addition to his prison sentence, Kuhn was ordered to pay full restitution.
