Local Woman Sentenced For Stealing From Non-Profit Group

A woman convicted of stealing more than 588 thousand dollars from her non-profit employer in Reynoldsburg was sentenced Monday to two years in prison. 44-year-old Wendy Harper must also make restitution. Prosecutors say Harper stole the money from Harvest Management Group while working there from 2008 through 2012. The firm manages properties for the disabled and the elderly and gets rent subsidies from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
