A woman who stole from a Nicholasville child-care center was sentenced Thursday to pay $201,060 in restitution and spend 30 months in federal prison, according to U.S. Attorney Kerry B. Harvey.

Pamela Sandlin, 55, was assistant director at Kids Connection Learning Center, where her duties included collecting money from parents and making bank deposits, according to Harvey's office.

Sandlin admitted she took money over several years and altered records to conceal the thefts.

The crime was prosecuted in federal court because the facility gets more than $10,000 annually in federal money.
