PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of New Brighton, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 27 months in prison and five years supervised release on her conviction of false entries in a bank record, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

Senior United States District Judge Maurice B. Cohill imposed the sentence on Shirley A. Howl, 56.
