Former CEO gets jail time for embezzlement

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — The former chief executive officer of a Pocatello nonprofit that employs people with disabilities has been sentenced to 10 days in jail and 10 years on probation for embezzlement.

Former New Day Products & Services CEO Nancy John also was ordered to repay at least $20,000 when she was sentenced on May 19.

District Judge Steven Dunn said another hearing will be held to determine John's full restitution. John's attorney said about $21,000 was taken, but the nonprofit says up to $175,000 is missing.

Day was fired in early 2010 and charged after an 18-month investigation. She pleaded guilty to one count of felony theft in March.

New Day Products trains the disabled in job skills and sells products such as picnic tables and storage sheds. It also offers bulk mailing and janitorial services.
