A former manager of a Cabell County convenience store will spend four years on probation for participating in a food stamp fraud scheme.
Stephanie Pauley's probation includes six months of home confinement and three months of community correction, U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said. She also must pay $127,000 in restitution.
The 35-year-old Huntington woman was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court. She pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to commit food stamp fraud.
Prosecutors said Pauley, the store's owner and another former employee, illegally redeemed about $127,000 worth of food stamp benefits at the All-In-One store located in Huntington between March 2009 and February.
