FAIRBANKS (AP) -- A 20-year-old woman has been sentenced to nine months in prison for her role in writing more than $32,000 in bad checks to Fairbanks-area businesses.
Emily Hudson also was sentenced Friday to 10 years probation.
Hudson reached a plea deal in February on a charge that she and 20-year-old Scott Herren, then her boyfriend, used a checking account containing $47 to write thousands in bogus checks during several months.
The sentence is nearly identical to the terms assigned to Herren last month. Together, Hudson and Herren must pay $28,000 restitution during their probation.
Hudson has been in custody for about one month. Robert Noreen, her attorney, requested that Superior Court Judge Richard Savell assign Hudson to incarceration until only October, when she is due to deliver twins.
Savell said Department of Corrections officials will determine whether to grant Hudson a furlough from jail as her due date nears.
