A judge sentenced a former Denver Newspaper Agency employee to 90 days in jail and 10 years’ probation for stealing more than $250,000 from the company between 2003 and 2007, the Denver Post reported.
Cassandra Demery, 34, lost her job as an assistant payroll manager with the DNA in July, and later pleaded guilty to theft in April, the paper reported.
“At Demery’s sentencing Monday, Denver District Court Judge Catherine Lemon ordered her to repay $275,811 to the agency that manages business operations for The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News,” the paper reported Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman with the district attorney’s office, revealing.
At the hearing, Demery was apologetic to her family and co-workers, Kimbrough told the paper. Demery was ordered directly to jail and taken from the courtroom in handcuffs, the paper reported.
