SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri woman is going to prison for 21 months for stealing nearly $170,000 from a Springfield hotel where she worked.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 47-year-old Janet Mosier, of Springfield, must also repay the stolen money under the sentence she received Thursday in federal court.
Mosier was the director of accounting services at Springfield University Plaza Hotel and Convention Center. In a guilty plea earlier this year, Mosier admitted stealing from a petty cash account from 2003 through 2010.
Prosecutors said Mosier resident submitted receipts from her personal expenses and others she got from family members to support inflated reports of petty cash outlays.
