A Watertown woman accused of embezzling more than $100,000 from the local school district has been sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $10,000.
Forty-three-year-old Denise Trively also was ordered Wednesday to pay restitution of nearly $147,000.
Authorities say Trively took the money between June 2012 and October 2013 while she was benefits coordinator for the district. She was fired late last year and pleaded guilty in May to a grand theft charge.
Trively was convicted of embezzling from her father-in-law's business in Iowa in the late 1990s.
