SPANISH FORK, Utah (AP) -- A woman who worked at Kmart for 26 years was ordered to repay $416,433, stolen through falsified sales and money orders.

"You're going to work probably more than one job and definitely more than full time," 4th District Court Judge Samuel McVey said Monday.

Terri Jex, 49, was convicted of communications fraud, forgery and identity theft. McVey put her on probation but warned that prison is possible if Jex is not working toward restitution in 90 days.

Jex said she is working part-time, has a job set up for August and is looking for another through the Utah Department of Workforce Services.

Kmart said the thefts began in 2000.
