PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A Butler County woman has been sentenced in federal court to 30 months imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release, on her conviction of embezzlement from an institution insured by the NCUA and income tax evasion, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Joy Flowers Conti imposed the sentence on Stacy L. Attisano, 44, of Portersville, Pa.

According to information presented to the court, between 2004 and 2010, Attisano embezzled approximately $222,000 from the Lawrence County School Employee Federal Credit Union, where she was employed as the assistant manager.
