Tifton -- A former doctor's office manger in Tifton will spend the next two years in a detention center after she was found guilty on 23-counts of theft by taking.

49-year old Brenda Ann Arrington was convicted of stealing $70,000  in checks from the Tiftarea Cardiology Office where she worked.

Prosecutors say Arrington wrote checks for as much as $25,000 before she was caught. Prosecutors say she also falsified her own medical records to show she had terminal cancer and needed to be isolated.

Arrington was sentenced to serve up to 24-months in a probation detention center. A judge also ordered her to serve 20 years probation and pay back the $70,000.
