Former city employee Sheryl Carroll was sentenced Monday to 40 months in prison for wire fraud. The sentence is just one month shy of the maximum under federal sentencing guidelines. In addition, Carroll was ordered to pay full restitution to the city and complete 100 hours of community service. Carroll will receive a letter in four to six weeks advising her of when to report to prison. “We believe this is a fair and just sentence,” City Administrator Wendy Gabriel said. “Carroll committed a crime and in the process violated the trust of the public and of her co-workers. She absolutely deserves this punishment.” Carroll pleaded guilty Nov. 5 in United States District Court to six counts of wire fraud. Carroll worked for the city as a payroll coordinator since 2002/Kristina Lyman, Coeur d'Alene Today/Kristina Lyman,
