Thief Gets 21 Years House Arrest

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia woman who admitted stealing $475,000 from her employer has been sentenced to 21 years of house arrest so she can work to repay it.

A defense lawyer for 40-year-old Lanette Sansoni says the victim was more interested in restitution than jail time.

Lawyer A. Charles Peruto Jr. says his client has repaid about $275,000 and will stay on house arrest until the remainder is repaid.

The judge set a payment schedule of $750 a month. That works out to about 21 years. But Peruto says he expects Sansoni to pay off the debt sooner.

Sansoni worked as an office manager for a small title company that went bust because of the theft.

She pleaded guilty in January. She can leave home to work but could go to jail if the payments stop.

Prosecutors argued for incarceration.
