Visalia woman sentenced in church embezzlement case

FRESNO, Calif.

/*Sandra Arreola*/ was sentenced to 11-years in prison with credit for time served. Earlier this month, she pleaded guilty to 13 counts of felony embezzlement and money laundering.

She was arrested in December for stealing from the "Visalia First Assembly Of God Church" where she worked as a bookkeeper. Investigators say she stole more than $2-million dollars during a seven-year period.

In court Thursday, Arreola told the judge she is very remorseful.
