She pleaded guilty in August to wire fraud for stealing the money from the HB Nitkin Group from February 2014 until December 2015.
She was an assistant to the chairman of the company with responsibilities that included managing accounts payable.
Prosecutors say she created fraudulent invoices made out to fictitious companies for masonry, carpentry, electrical and plumbing work. She then used the victims’ checks to the fake companies and deposited the money into her personal bank account.
