HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - It'll be a month in jail for the Henrico woman who admitted to stealing from a local catholic school.

Alyson Banks was sentenced Wednesday, after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of embezzlement.

Back in May, authorities said Banks stole about $5,000 while serving as PTO President at Saint Mary's Catholic School.

Prosecutors say the money was paid back, in full.
