NEW ORLEANS - A Denham Springs woman was sentenced to 30 months in prison after she was found guilty of embezzling more than $600,000.

41-year-old Kristin Koenig (also known as Kristin Barnes) was sentenced Tuesday following a guilty plea to one count of bank fraud.

Koenig was hired to do accounting work for a Jefferson Parish business. From Sept. 2011 to July 2014, Koenig embezzled $601,822 from her client by forging her name on company checks and manipulating internal computer/account records, according to the Department of Justice.
