Ex-Girl Scouts CEO gets 3 months for embezzlement

Tuesday - 7/8/2014, 3:40am  ET

HANOVER, Va. (AP) -- A former Girl Scouts executive in Virginia will serve a three-month sentence after pleading guilty to embezzling nearly $23,000 from the organization.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1qEFZg5) that 62-year-old Linda Carne of Crozier was sentenced Monday. A Hanover Circuit Court judge suspended all but three months of a five-year sentence.

Carne pleaded guilty in April. She served as CEO of the Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia from April 2010 to December 2011.

Prosecutors say Carne used a Girl Scout-issued credit card to pay for stays in posh hotels, baseball game tickets, spa services and rental of a North Carolina beach house.
