An Orr woman will serve eight months in federal prison for embezzling more than $300,000 from Fortune Bay Resort Casino in Tower.

Jennifer Lynn Boutto, 33, received the sentence Monday from Judge Eric Tostrud at a hearing in U.S. District Court in St. Paul. She also was ordered to serve a year of supervised probation following her incarceration and pay full restitution to the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa.

Boutto, a former front desk supervisor at the casino, pleaded guilty in March to a felony count of embezzlement and theft of tribal funds. Authorities said she managed to steal $315,739.87 by processing nearly 3,000 false cash refunds between January 2013 and October 2019.
