The San Diego Union-Tribune says (http://bit.ly/2h3MkWv ) Sherri Potts was sentenced Tuesday.

Potts was finance director of the Carlsbad-based exercise business for about nine years.

Authorities say the Fallbrook woman embezzled to finance personal expenses and a gambling habit.

The thefts were discovered after Potts was let go from the company in 2014.

She was arrested last fall and pleaded guilty in March to grand theft, forgery and fraudulent appropriation.
