Marylee M. Hubbard, 30, of Brookings, South Dakota, was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison for embezzling $146,600 from Hy-Vee Food Store where she was employed as a pharmacy technician.  According to prosecutors, over a period of about 5 1/2 years, from January 2005 to August 2010, Hubbard siphoned cash receipts on a nearly daily basis, depositing most of it into her own bank accounts.  Hubbard pleaded guilty last month to aggravated grand theft.  At her sentencing hearing, Hubbard, is quoted as saying, “I’m a good person who got caught up in bad choices.”
