(Brigham City-AP) -- The former executive director of the Brigham City Chamber of Commerce will spend six months in jail for stealing funds from the organization.
Cindy Monson-Litchford was also ordered to make a public apology. The 31-year-old pleaded guilty last year to communications fraud.
Court records show that more than 125-thousand dollars was stolen between January 1997 and March 2002. An affidavit shows the financial discrepancies were discovered about the same time Monson-Litchford was fired.
Monson-Litchford began working for the chamber in October of 1997, the same day a probation officer recommended she be released from probation for attempted theft.
She had pleaded guilty in 1995 to attempted theft from Linda's Furniture in Salt Lake City, where had been a bookkeeper.
