FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A former Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration worker was sentenced to six months in jail for conspiring to steal more than $87,000 from the agency’s Frederick office.

Joann Fleishell, 53, was convicted at a bench trial March 26. She was also ordered to pay restitution at Friday’s sentencing.

Fleishell was the assistant manager of the office when she failed to record cash payments for 613 registration renewals from January 2007 to October 2008.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas Gansler says an internal investigation uncovered the scheme. He says the conviction sends a message that stealing from taxpayers won’t be tolerated.
