COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - A 67-year-old woman was sentenced to two years in federal prison for embezzling more than half a million dollars from a South Carolina church.

Prosecutors say beginning in at least 2006 and continuing until April of 2013 Stroupe embezzled over $600,000 of church money.

Senior United States District Judge Margaret B. Seymour sentenced Stroupe and ordered that Stroupe pay restitution to her victim.
