ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) - A Belington lawyer convicted of defrauding the West Virginia Public Defender Services will spend a year and a day in prison.
Lisa A. Weese also must spend three years on supervised release after she completes her sentence.
U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II said Monday that U.S. District Court Chief Judge John Preston Bailey hasn't yet determined how much restitution the 43-year-old Weese must pay.
Ihlenfeld says Weese submitted false voucher reports by mail to the agency from September 2006 to September 2011. She received more than $159,000 for hours she didn't work.
Weese pleaded guilty to mail fraud in November 2012. She was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in Elkins.
