A town of Rutland woman was sentenced Wednesday in Jefferson County Court to up to four years in state prison for stealing more than $75,000 from her employer, a Subway restaurant.
Barbara Jean Miller, 58, of 28477 County Route 69, South Rutland, was sentenced to two to four years in prison for a March 2 guilty plea to third-degree grand larceny. She admitted that from June 2005 to July 2011, she stole $75,371 from the Subway shop, 19116 Route 11, town of Watertown. She was accused of stealing the cash from the store and destroying or removing deposit slips to conceal the thefts.
She was sentenced as a second-felony offender, having pleaded guilty in 2004 to fourth-degree grand larceny. In that case, she had been accused of stealing nearly $14,000 from a Watertown convenience store, where she was manager.
She was sentenced in March 2004 to five years probation in that matter and ordered to pay full restitution, which she did. According to court documents, the time of her making restitution payments overlapped with the period in which she was accused of stealing from Subway.
She was additionally ordered Wednesday to pay full restitution to Subways insurance carrier in the form of a civil judgment.
