SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A former employee of a school bus company serving the Sioux Falls School District has been sentenced to a year in prison for stealing more than half a million dollars from her employer.

Authorities say Crystal Neuman began working for School Bus, Inc. in 1998 and started embezzling $537,000 from the company beginning in 2006 by writing extra checks to herself.

The Argus Leader says Neuman collected $80,000 from her employee profit-sharing fund the day after she was fired for the embezzlement. School Bus owner Steve Hey said Monday the company could not prevent her from collecting the funds.

Neuman is to report to federal prison Dec. 4.


This story has been corrected to show Neuman collected money from her profit-sharing fund the day after she was fired, not day of.
