POCATELLO, Idaho -- A southern Idaho woman has agreed to repay $1.2 million to her former employer after pleading guilty to felony larceny.

The Idaho State Journal reports Peggy L. Pulley was sentenced to six months in jail and 14 years' probation by 6th District Judge David Nye. Pulley's attorney, Greg May, told the judge Monday that his client had already started repaying her former employer, Acoustic Specialties, under a civil contract reached as part of a plea deal with prosecutors.

Pulley started working for the Pocatello contractor in the mid-1990s. But she separated from the company early last year after the accounting discrepancies were noticed.

Under the civil contract, Pulley must pay Acoustic Specialties $3,000 a month until the full $1.2 million is reimbursed.
