LOGAN (AP) — A Logan woman who stole more than $90,000 from her employer and used the money to take a cruise, pay off personal debt and pay restitution in another criminal case has been sentenced to one to 15 years in prison.

"I can never, ever be around money again," Kimberly Lyn Turner, 29, said Monday.

First District Court Judge Gordon J. Low called Turner "untruthful and self-indulgent" and also ordered her to repay her former employers more than $93,000.

Turner pleaded guilty last month to second-degree felony theft, two third-degree felony counts of theft and two third-degree felony counts of forgery. Under a plea bargain, 26 charges were dismissed.

She admitted forging checks for $5,000 and $1,500 on the accounts of three property management companies where she was employed. The forgeries occurred between 2001 and 2003.

Turner also allegedly stole thousands of dollars from renters who paid their rent in cash to the property management companies.
