Jodi B. Muraczewski, 46, of the Waretown section of Ocean Township, New Jersey, was sentenced to 3 years in prison for embezzling some $370,000 from Harrah's Entertainment Inc.'s Project 21 program. According to authorities, Muraczewski, a paralegal supervisor at Harrah's who handled bookkeeping responsibilities for the program - set up to educate people about the dangers of underage gambling - forged checks for her own benefit. Muraczewski allegedly siphoned the funds over a period of at least four years, from 2005 until 2009. She was originally charged last September and plead guilty last December. Muraczewski was a 17 year employee of Harrah's.
