46 year old Kimberly Dawn Brown was charged with stealing more than $200,000 over a 5-year period from the Bray-Doyle School District where she worked as financial secretary.
Authorities say the funds came from the school employees' Christmas account.
She received a 30-year sentence with all but 5 years suspended.
She also must pay a fine of $250 on each of the 14 counts, and after serving the 5 years, must pay monthly restitution until she repays $255,000.
