Jyl Olson-DeRosso was scheduled to get her sentence Monday in Gogebic County, but the court hearing was postponed. A judge ordered restitution last week.

Olson-DeRosso was treasurer in Ironwood Township, which has less than 3,000 residents. The Daily Globe reports that she's been ordered to repay more than $1.2 million in missing money and another $155,000 in costs related to the investigation.

Olson-DeRosso pleaded guilty or no contest to 10 charges, although she says she believes an audit wrongly blamed her for "everything that has ever been wrong in Ironwood Township."
