ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A woman who admitted stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from her employer in Stearns County may spend 4½ years in prison.

The attorney for Sherry Lynn Anderson and the prosecution have agreed to the sentence recommendation. The 44-year-old Long Prairie woman has pleaded guilty to five counts of theft by swindle.

A court complaint says Anderson stole nearly $760,000 from Minnesota Veterinary Associates between May 2008 and March 2014 when she worked as an office assistant in accounts receivable. The 5-year statute of limitations allowed prosecutors to charge her with taking about $533,000.

The St. Cloud Times (https://on.sctimes.com/1osLBN6 ) says Anderson is scheduled to be sentenced May 6.
