LYNCHBURG, Va. - A Lynchburg woman has been sentenced to eight months in prison for illegally charging nearly $152,000 on Dominion Virginia Power credit cards.

A federal judge on Friday also ordered 45-year-old Dianna Maria Mobley to make restitution and serve seven months of home confinement after her release from prison.

Mobley previously pleaded guilty to a single count of credit card fraud.

According to prosecutors, Mobley was an employee of NAES, a company that provided services for Dominion at the Alta Vista Power Station. She had access to a variety of power company credit cards, which she used to buy 422 gift cards, a lawn mower, a utility trailer, personal computers and other items.
