Cheryl A. McNamee, 47, Sun Prairie, was sentenced on Wednesday to 24 months in prison on tax fraud charges, according to federal court officials.
McNamee pleaded guilty to the charge on Feb. 8, officials said.
During both her guilty plea and at sentencing, McNamee told the court that she embezzled $595,473 from her former employer, Hexagon Title, between 2002 and 2011.
She pleaded guilty to failing to declare the amount she embezzled in 2009 on her tax return for that year. As a result of McNamee's conduct, Hexagon Title was put out of business and all the employees lost their jobs, according to court officials.
McNamee must pay restitution of $469,413 to Thomas and Gary Hebl, the owners of Hexagon Title, and an additional $126,060 to First American Title Company, officials said.
