A judge has sentenced a woman to prison after she was convicted of stealing nearly $200,000 from the company she worked for.

Joyce Battaglia was the comptroller for Bernardo Footwear, an international women's shoe company. She would siphon thousands of dollars from the company's payroll into her own account.

During Wednesday's sentencing hearing, it was revealed she had also embezzled money from several other companies as well.

She was given a 45-year sentence.
