Campbell sentence to 41 months
Collapsing into tears in the courtroom after learning she will serve three-and-a-half years in federal prison, longtime Stewart Pharmacy manager Glenna Campbell was sentenced Monday for stealing over $200,000 from her former employer.Campbell, 56, wept as the federal judge handed down the 41-month sentence for her conviction by a jury late last year for stealing $219,000 from Stewart Pharmacy where she had worked for 32 years – much of her time as the trusted manager where prosecutors say she had full access to the company’s money and financial books.Moments after receiving sentence Mrs. Campbell collapsed at the back door of the courtroom, loudly sobbing and moaning. It prompted the court to take a break while she was assisted by friends and relatives from the courtroom.Prosecutors came up with the $219,000 figure for money they say she stole from 2005 to 2009, but they believe the thefts had been going on since at least 2000. The federal case was circumstantial aside from a surveillance tape which appeared to show Campbell putting money in her pocketbook while sitting at her desk.
