Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The judge has added jail time to the sentence for a former F-M Derby Girl who pleaded guilty to embezzling from the league.

Judge John Irby decided the joint sentencing agreement that called for Louise Jauss to pay $10,000 in restitution and receive credit for 10 days served on electronic home monitoring, wasn't enough.

Irby sentenced Jauss to an additional 25 days in jail and ruled the felony theft conviction will stay on her record.

An auditor found more than $13,000 in unauthorized transactions while Jauss was working as treasurer, mainly ATM withdrawals.
