SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) - A former community college employee has been sentenced to nearly a year in jail for stealing identity information of her coworkers in San Luis Obispo County.

Prosecutors say Lacey Fowler accessed personal data including Social Security numbers in her role as human resources analyst at Cuesta College. She was accused of using the stolen information to open up credit card accounts in the victims’ names.

The Tribune newspaper reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1SVQawa ) that the 30-year-old had pleaded no contest to felony identity theft and received 350 days in jail.

After she is released, Fowler will be on probation for four years and must participate in residential drug treatment.

Investigators executing a search warrant at her home found methamphetamine and heroin.

In a separate case, her husband, Chad Fowler, pleaded no contest to possession of methamphetamine for sale.
