Michelle Zonay admitted to embezzling more than $100,000 from the Springfield Township dental office where she worked. She now faces several years of court supervision and a large bill of restitution.

Zonay, 40, of Sellersville, was sentenced in Montgomery County Court to 60 months in the county’s intermediate punishment program, the first six months of which must be served under house arrest, after she pleaded guilty to a felony charge of theft by unlawful taking in connection with incidents that occurred while she worked for Celebrity Smiles along Bethlehem Pike, writes Carl Hessler in the Pottstown Mercury.

Zonay will be allowed to leave her home only for work, medical appointments and other court-approved purposes.

Zonay will serve the remainder of the 60-month sentence under intensive probation.

Common Pleas Court Judge Todd D. Eisenberg also ordered Zonay to pay $103,849 in restitution in connection with the theft.

An investigation began in November 2017 when the owner of the dental practice reported to Springfield Township police that he discovered an employee, identified as Zonay, had been stealing from the business, according to the criminal complaint.
