Devils Lake woman sentenced to prison for embezzling more than quarter of a million dollars


DEVILS LAKE, North Dakota — A Devils Lake woman who stole more than a quarter of a million dollars from her employer has been sentenced to five years in prison.

KZZY radio reports that 65-year-old Sonya Dahlen pleaded guilty Tuesday to felony theft and was sentenced to prison and restitution.

Ramsey County State's Attorney Lonnie Olson says Dahlen took the money from a Devils Lake-based hotel company between January 2011 and April 2013. He says she told authorities that she used the money for gambling.
