Associated Press

A Honolulu woman who embezzled nearly $85,000 and made $38,000 in fraudulent credit card transactions has been sentenced to 21 months in prison.

U.S. District Court Judge J. Michael Seabright on Tuesday also ordered Cristina Hanzawa to pay more than $115,000 in restitution to her employer, Access Lifts Hawaii Inc., and $6,000 to Pitney Bowes Bank.
The 28-year-old Hanzawa had pleaded guilty to one count of making a false statement on a credit application and four counts of credit card fraud.
