RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City woman accused of stealing from the bank where she worked has been sentenced to two years in federal prison.

Authorities say 20-year-old Krissa Shewey stole checks from mailboxes late last year and early this year and cashed them at the bank. She pleaded guilty in June to an embezzlement charge.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Shewey was ordered to pay $3,300 in restitution.
