HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — A former Harrisburg Area Community College vice president has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for wire fraud after prosecutors say she bought $228,000 worth of Target gift cards online using a college credit card.

Nancy Rockey was sentenced Tuesday in federal court.

The 55-year-old Harrisburg woman resigned from the school in February 2012 during an administrative shake-up before the thefts were discovered.

Investigators say Rockey hid the thefts by submitting bogus purchasing invoices to the school. They say she used the gift cards to buy items for herself, her family and her friends.

Dauphin County prosecutors charged Rockey in January 2013. They turned the case over to federal prosecutors in October 2013. She pleaded guilty a month later.
