FREDERICKSBURG, Virginia — A Richmond woman has been sentenced for embezzling from a residential substance abuse facility in Fredericksburg.

Marlene Kae McCary received a 40-year sentence with all but four years suspended on Monday in Fredericksburg Circuit Court.

The Free Lance-Star (http://bit.ly/1u5fJZR ) reports that the 60-year-old McCary also must pay more than $90,000 in restitution.

McCary was accused of embezzling money from Serenity Home of Fredericksburg while serving as the facility's director. She had pleaded guilty in December 2013 to four felony embezzlement counts.

Prosecutor Jeff Adams says McCary used the money pay her mortgage, personal credit card bills, car insurance, medicine and a veterinarian bill for her cat.

The nonprofit facility lost its license and closed in 2013.
