Accused Girl Scout Crook Sentenced

A former Virginia Girl Scouts executive was sentenced to serve three-months behind bars after pleading guilty to embezzling nearly $23,000 from the Girl Scouts.

According to The Richmond Times-Dispatch, 62-year-old Linda Carne was sentenced Monday to five years in prison, but the judge suspended all but three months.

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.
