A Lacombe woman has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison for two felony counts of theft of government funds she obtained after Hurricane Katrina.

According to court documents, in 2005 Denise Stobaugh and her husband applied for a loan from the SBA based on damage purportedly done by the hurricane to their home.

The SBA granted the defendants a $38,800 loan.

In 2006, Denise Stobaugh applied for Road Home money and received $150,000.

Prosecutors say the Stobaugh home received only minimal damage from Katrina.
