Federal authorities said a Bridgewater woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for failing to pay taxes on more than $200,000 she embezzled from her employer. The US attorney’s office said Deborah Wilmot, 42, was sentenced Tuesday in US District Court in New Haven. Authorities said she failed to pay $69,000 in taxes after she embezzled $221,624 from a software company where she was a bookkeeper. According to court papers filed by her lawyer, Wilmot has agreed to repay the software company and returned $127,000 at the time of her plea to tax evasion. Her attorney said a psychiatric evaluation found Wilmot suffers from personality disorders.
