BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a former Belfry school clerk who admitted filing a false tax return as part of a scheme to steal school money for personal use.

During a hearing on Friday in Billings, U.S. District Judge Susan Watters sentenced 58-year-old Patricia Ann Webb to six months of home confinement and five years of probation.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1Nsd06C ) that Webb also must pay about $36,000 restitution.

Webb apologized to the Belfry school district in a brief statement.

Webb worked as a clerk from July 2008 until August 2012, when she was placed on leave. She resigned in October 2012. She faced a maximum of three years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
