A woman who pleaded guilty to stealing at least a hundred thousand dollars from the dentist she worked for in Nixa has been sentenced.

Prosecutor Ron Cleek says Sandra Jean Martin, Nixa, doctored the books and hid credit card statements from Dr. Michael Butterfield.

Martin was sentenced to five years probation. She was ordered to serve 30 days shock time in the Christian County jail and has to pay Butterfield $114, 842.25 in restitution.

Court documents reveal that Butterfield became alarmed when his credit card was declined. When he asked Martin for the statements, she left a resignation note on her desk and left.
