TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A former New Jersey bookkeeper has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to stealing nearly $300,000 from a state agency that serves the disabled.

The state Attorney General’s Office said Suzanne Eyman was sentenced Friday.

She admitted to using a fake name and her husband’s social security number to bill the state division of developmental disabilities for services and then changing legitimate invoices to cover it up.

The scheme ran over nine years starting in April 2006. She pleaded guilty to theft by deception in September.

Eyman has to fully pay back the state and will be barred from holding any public job in the state.
