Lori Isenberg, who remains under investigation for the suspicious February 2018 death of her husband, was sentenced Tuesday to five years in federal prison after she pleaded guilty to embezzling more than a half-million dollars from the North Idaho Housing Coalition.

The 64-year-old Coeur d’Alene woman pleaded guilty to three counts of wire fraud in January. A fourth charge was dropped in the plea agreement.

Investigators say she embezzled about $580,000 from funds that were supposed to go to help low-income individuals find affordable housing.

In addition to her five-year prison sentence, Isenberg was also ordered to three years of supervised probation upon release and to pay $20,000 in fines, according to KHQ News. The maximum sentence she faced was 20 years in prison.
