PHOENIX (AP) - A San Tan Valley woman accused of stealing about $240,000 from her employer has been convicted of theft and is facing up to 10 years in prison.

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office says a jury found April Mooney guilty on one count of theft and four counts of fraudulent schemes and artifices.

She allegedly used the stolen funds to pay for personal expenses, dining, shopping and ATM withdrawals at multiple casinos.

The AG’s Office says Mooney began working in 2010 as a controller for a construction concrete business in Gilbert. Her responsibilities included handling bank accounts and office administration.

Another employee noticed suspicious charges on the company’s credit card in January 2014 and Mooney was fired after an internal investigation.

Prosecutors say Mooney is scheduled to be sentenced April 22.
