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.
