Woman sentenced for embezzlement

Saturday, March 9, 2002

ST. LOUIS -- A suburban St. Louis woman was sentenced to five months in a work-release program Friday for embezzling nearly $200,000 from the dental office she once managed.

Carol A. Strope, 55, of Chesterfield, pleaded guilty in December to felony tax evasion, mail fraud and credit card fraud. She was ordered to serve five months of home confinement after her work-release term, and to pay restitution of $50,000.
