Lori A. Tompkins, 35, of Salisbury, Connecticut, was sentenced today to 3 years in prison for embezzling some $110,000 from the Salisbury Board of Education, where she had been employed as clerk and treasurer. Tompkins plead guilty to the embezzlement last November admitting she misappropriated the funds over a three and a half year period between March 2005 and November 2008. Tompkins was also ordered to pay $108,000 in restitution. She was charged last month with first-degree larceny, second-degree forgery and illegal use of a credit card. According to authorities, Tompkins embezzled a total of $110,395.11 from the board and the activity accounts of the Salisbury Central School.
