A former employee of California State University, Bakersfield was sentenced Monday morning in an embezzlement case connected to the university.

Angela Mora was charged after $44,000 was taken from the university’s Wells Fargo account.

She was sentenced to 60 days of work release and three years probation. She must also pay restitution.

Mora previously pleaded no contest to a felony count of grand theft of property and a misdemeanor count of embezzlement.

Eyewitness News obtained a search warrant last June that stated CSUB told police about an employee allegedly embezzling college funds and forging signatures to obtain the funds. The first fraudulent transaction took place in December 2014. After that, there were reportedly 25 transactions through April 2017.

A CSUB spokesperson said Monday that Mora is no longer employed with the university.
