Stephanie Vandervier, age 28, was sentenced to 18 months of probation, $972.61 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Vandervier was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2013, and pled guilty to a Superseding Information that charged her with Misprision of a Felony on August 19, 2013.
