TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- A former employee at Kansas State University's biosecurity research institute has been sentenced to 60 days in federal prison for embezzling research funds.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 51-year-old Linda Miller must also pay $14,000 dollars in restitution under the sentence she received Friday.
She had pled guilty in October.
Miller worked from August 2007 to January 2013 at the institute on the Manhattan campus.
In her plea, Miller admitted altering three checks received by the institute and depositing the money into her personal bank account.
