Earlier this month, former XM employee Valencia Person was sentenced to 15 months in prison after embezzling over $900,000 from the satcaster. Now The Washington Examiner reports that Person's co-worker Brenda Jones was given the same sentence as well. Both women were sentenced to 15 months, and they must both pay back the $908,000 stolen from the satcaster. As previously reported, the pair stole funds that had been marked for XM's vendors and re-routed the money into their own personal accounts.
