A Louisiana woman was sentenced to 41 months in prison Wednesday for writing at least 1,500 bad checks for more than $250,000.
She wrote bad checks to at least three dozen businesses in Mississippi.
Latosha Rogers, 35, of Tallulah was arrested last summer after passing bogus checks in a Jackson area mall.
She pleaded guilty to wire fraud in March.
Prosecutors had recommended a more lenient sentence as part of the plea deal than the one handed down by U.S. District Judge Henry T. Wingate, who gave her the maximum time under federal sentencing guidelines.
Rogers must pay nearly $200,000 in restitution, serve three years of supervised release after prison and submit to random drug tests.
