KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A former Internal Revenue Service agent faces sentencing after admitting she was paid for meetings with taxpayers that never occurred.

U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil will decide Tuesday whether to accept the government's recommendation of probation for Becky L. Book of Pittsburg.

Book pleaded guilty in February to receiving more than $26,000 in salary and mileage payments that she didn't earn.

Prosecutors say Book claimed she worked 744 hours between March 2010 and April 2011, but she actually used those hours as unauthorized personal time.

Book has agreed to pay $13,000 in partial payment of restitution at her sentencing.
