Amie Elisabeth Ard, 30, of Topeka, Kansas was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison for embezzling more than $433,000 from a convenience store operated by the Wood Oil Company where she had served as store manager.  According to prosecutors, Ard simply took cash from the daily receipts and falsified company records in an attempt to cover up the thefts.  Specifically, Ard pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud.  She was also ordered to pay $433,632 in restitution.  Ard's scheme reportedly spanned about an 8 month period during 2008.  She was originally indicted in November 2010.
