KINGSTON, Pa. — A former employee of Wyoming Valley Motors BMW was sentenced Monday to four years of probation, with the first 12 months to be served under house arrest. The woman, who pleaded guilty in June to a single count of theft, stole $52,500 from the dealership, reports Citizensvoice.com.

Between May 2013 and October 2013, Briana E. Tavaglione, 22, performed 17 unauthorized refund transactions while working as a cashier at the dealership and refunded the money to her own checking account. As part of her sentence, she must pay $44,248 in remaining restitution.

    She should have had to do some time for this. Wow - what a break she got, must have had a good lawyer.

    What would jail do? She is very young and made a major mistake. I'm not saying in anyway what she did wasn't wrong. She has no choice to pay the money back plus thousands in court cost and fines. Not to mention a felony charge at the young age of 22. She had no prior wrong doings ever. She needs to make this right for everyone involved.
