A former treasurer for the Cass Lake-Bena School District has been sentenced for one count of felony theft by false representation. 

Terri Lisa Vail, 53, was employed at the district from 2008-2010. It's there prosecutors say he misrepresented her marital status on health insurance forms, receiving thousands of dollars in benefits that she was not entitled to. Vail said she was married when she, in fact, was not. 

On Tuesday, Vail was sentenced in Cass County court to serve supervised probation for 3 years, including 30 days of electronic home monitoring. 

Vail was also ordered to pay $23,817.80 in restitution to the school district.
