AUGUSTA, Maine — A former Maine woman has been sentenced to a year and a half in prison for embezzling more than $10,000 from two youth sports organizations, and stealing state welfare benefits.

Justice Michaela Murphy handed down the sentence against 42-year-old Wendi Pond on Thursday at the Capital Judicial Center in Augusta.

The Kennebec Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1D4LaK1 ) the Whitefield, New Hampshire, woman pleaded guilty earlier this year to embezzling from Winslow Wrestling Sports Booster Club, where she was a treasurer, and the China youth field hockey team, where she was a coach. She also admitted to stealing from the state.

Pond was ordered to pay restitution to the two organizations and other state departments totaling more than $50,000.
