NORTH HERO, Vt.—The former Isle La Motte town clerk is going to jail for 90 days for her conviction on charges of embezzling at least $100,000 from the Grand Isle County town.

Suzanne Labombard was sentenced Friday in Vermont District Court in North Hero.

The Burlington Free Press says Labombard pleaded guilty in September to one count of embezzlement and two counts of false claim.

State officials say investigators couldn't determine exactly how much Labombard took from the town.

Labombard's father, a former member of the town Selectboard, repaid the town $150,000.
