Judge sentences ex-transit agency exec to jail
The former director of a transit agency in the region who pleaded guilty to embezzlement has been sentenced to six months in jail.
Linda LeFebre learned her punishment yesterday. She entered the plea earlier after authorities said she overpaid herself for over 750 hours of work over a four-year period.
LeFebre apologized, saying she's working to be a much more honest person.
Authorities said LeFebre had about $32,000 in unauthorized pay with Macatawa Area Transit.
They said she also used a corporate credit card to purchase items for herself and family members.
LeFebre has paid more than $44,000 in restitution.
Macatawa Area Transit, known as MAX, serves the Holland and Zeeland areas.
LeFebre resigned in April after being placed on administrative leave during the investigation.
