Forty-one-year-old Kristi Lawrence was given three months in federal custody and six months of home confinement, to be followed by three years of supervised release. She also must pay nearly $88,000 in restitution.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Lawrence manipulated timesheets over a two-year period starting October 2012 to obtain unauthorized overtime pay. She pleaded guilty last December to a charge of theft from an Indian tribal organization.
