BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A former University of Vermont employee who pleaded guilty to embezzling at least $185,000 from the college’s cheese making program is going to prison for 13 months.

Jody Farnham of Burlington was sentenced Monday in federal court in Rutland. She had pleaded guilty to charges she cashed tuition checks for her own use that were earmarked for the college’s Vermont Institute for Artisan Cheese, where she was an administrator.

Federal prosecutors say she also used UVM credit cards for personal purchases. The cheese institute closed in May 2013 after years of operating losses.

Farnham’s lawyer declined to comment. She was ordered to report to prison next month.
