Delaware's U.S. Attorney says a Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to four years in prison for a plot to steal $3.4 million from Citigroup.

Twenty-eight-year-old Carin Seals of Leola, Pa., was sentenced Monday. She had pleaded guilty in July 2009 to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Seals worked in a Citigroup department in New Castle. Authorities say Seals conspired with two men to send $2.9 million to their accounts, and arranged with others to send nearly half a million dollars to a company.
