A former state Department for Children and Families supervisor is being sentenced for her role in a $490,000 embezzlement scheme.
Forty-seven-year-old Kathy Lantagne of Charleston got the state to issue more than 250 checks that she and her sister then cashed.
Latagne says she has a gambling addiction.
She pleaded guilty in March to mail fraud, theft from a program that receives federal funds and filing a false tax return.
She’s being sentenced today in federal court in Rutland.
