SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A 55-year-old central New York woman is being sent to prison after she failed to repay any of the more than $90,000 she stole from her employer.

The Post-Standard reports (https://bit.ly/2qeg0Rp ) Tina Blanchard, of Van Buren, was sentenced Thursday in a Syracuse court to one to three years in state prison.

Prosecutors say she was working as a supervisor at Central New York Services in Syracuse when she stole $93,000 over a four-year period from the nonprofit that serves people with mental illness and substance abuse issues.

Blanchard pleaded guilty in October. Her sentencing was adjourned to give her time to come up with some of the money to repay her employer. The judge rejected a request for more time and ordered her to repay the money after she’s released from prison.
