An Easton woman who admitted embezzling thousands of dollars from her former employer will spend many months in Northampton County Prison.

Anne DiFrancesco was sentenced Friday to 11 1/2 to 23 months for embezzling from Star Buick-GMC in Easton.

The District Attorney's office asked that DiFrancesco be sent to state prison, but Judge Emil Giordano ruled that since she had  no prior record, and family in town, that should could serve her sentence in county prison rather than at state prison.

DiFrancesco also faces 15 years of county probation after her jail time is over.
