WASHINGTON (AP) — A former District of Columbia firefighter has been sentenced to seven days in jail for a scam involving CPR training.

Natalie Overton-Williams, 41, of Capitol Heights, Md., was sentenced Tuesday in Superior Court. Under a plea agreement she has agreed to resign from the department and pay the department the $3,610 she stole.

Overton-Williams worked at the department’s training academy in 2008 and was responsible for the department’s CPR training program, which offered training to residents and organizations for a fee.

Overton-Williams acknowledged taking six payments for herself.
