NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Louisiana woman has been sentenced to three years in prison for writing fraudulent checks.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Orleans says 52-year-old Maria Spears, of Kenner, was sentenced Wednesday.

She had pleaded guilty to bank larceny.

Prosecutors say she wrote approximately $357,000 worth of bad checks from June 2015 until March of last year, making purchases of cars and real estate.

Spears still faces a December restitution hearing.
