Sikeston woman going to prison for wire fraud

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A Sikeston woman is going to spend a year in prison for wire fraud.

That's the sentence a federal judge handed down to 42 year old Christy Ann Chandler.

Prosecutors say in May of 2008, Chandler was the office manager at S-and-W Cabinets in Chaffee.

While in that position, she was accused of making multiple unauthorized payments from an S-and-W account into three personal bank accounts in her name. Those transfers totaled more than $102,000.

Besides the one year sentence, the judge also ordered Chandler to pay restitution when she's released from prison.
