A jury in September convicted 44-year-old Supanee "Tami" Morris of Houston of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and 10 counts of wire fraud.

Prosecutors say the case involved issuance of more than 1,000 unauthorized tickets during 2004 and 2005.

Morris, whose 46-month prison sentenced was announced Thursday, also must repay more than $650,000 to the Houston-based airline.

The fraudulent ticket scheme was discovered by Continental security.
