Woman gets jail for embezzling from seafood plant

- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A former bookkeeper who embezzled about $500,000 from a Kodiak seafood plant will serve 46 months in a federal prison and make restitution. The U.S. attorney's office says in a release that 33-year-old Isairis Wolfe of Kodiak was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Anchorage on Monday. Officials say she wrote about 52 checks on a Trident Seafoods account to four associates, who would share in the profits after cashing the checks. Prosecutors said Wolfe claimed methamphetamine use clouded her judgment. Officials said she used her share of the money to buy diamond jewelry, a new truck and a home addition, among other items. The missing funds were discovered shortly after Wolfe was fired as the plant's bookkeeper in 2010. All four associates have been sentenced to jail terms.
