A former employee of the U.S. Marshals Service was sentenced Monday to 21 months in prison for stealing $104,000 in government funds, the U.S. Attorneys office stated.
Sno Rush, 40, was also ordered to pay back the money she stole and will be on supervised release for three years after she finishes her prison sentence, authorities said.
Rush worked as an administrative officer for the Marshals Service from October 1998 to November 2008. She was responsible for, among other things, handling payrolls and drafting and signing U.S. Treasury checks.
During a plea, Rush admitted to unlawfully using a government credit card for personal use, creating a false employee on the payroll system and taking the salary and issuing government checks to pay the balance of her credit card, among other things.
