Woman sentenced for stealing $500k from Boston bombing charity

A woman has been sentenced to two-and-a-half to three years in prison after admitting to stealing almost $500,000 from a charity established to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Audrea Gause from Troy, New York gave most of the $480,000 she received from the One Fund to a contractor to build a new home according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors had sought a sentence of up to five years, but the judge granted a defense request for the lower sentence after Gause, 27, pleaded guilty in Suffolk Superior Court, Massachusetts  to larceny over $250, according to the Boston Herald.
