BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A longtime employee of a North Dakota credit union has been ordered to pay back more than $130,000 she took from the company.

Georgia Schwartz, of Glen Ullin, was charged in federal court with embezzlement and misapplication from a credit union. She pleaded guilty in October.

Prosecutors say the money was taken over a 22-year period from the Glen Ullin Credit Union, now known as the Western Cooperative Credit Union. Schwartz allegedly kept two sets of records to conceal the crime.

Judge Patrick Conmy on Wednesday gave the 59-year-old Schwartz credit for one day in custody and directed her to serve three years of supervised release.

Conmy ordered Schwartz to forfeit two homes that she owned.
