BUTLER, Pa. (AP) — The former chief operating officer of a Pennsylvania hospital system and her ex-detective husband have both been sentenced to federal prison terms for embezzling more than $1 million from the wife’s employer. Federal prosecutors say Scott and Stephanie Roskovski used the stolen money for personal expenditures including expensive vacations, home improvements and lavish parties. The funds were taken from Butler Health System from 2011 to 2017. Stephanie Roskovski received a 51-month sentence Thursday, while her husband got a 30-month term. The couple will also have to pay restitution, but that amount hasn't yet been determined. Scott Roskovski has tried unsuccessfully to withdraw his guilty plea and will likely appeal the sentence.
