Posted: Updated:

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis man has been ordered to spend 10 months in federal prison for stealing more than $25,000 in unemployment compensation.

Kenneth Loving was sentenced Tuesday in East St. Louis after pleading guilty to a felony count of embezzlement of public funds. He also was ordered to spend three years on post-prison supervised release and to repay $200 a month in restitution.

Authorities say Loving stole the funds administered by the Illinois Department of Employment Security while working for Midwest Service Group Inc.
