An Ocean County woman was sentenced Friday to a state prison term for theft charges connected to theft while she worked as a bookkeeper at Hot Springs Spas in Ship Bottom.

 Gina Harle, 57, of the Loveladies section of Long Beach Township, was sentenced to a three-year prison term on one count of third-degree theft and a five-year term on one count of second-degree computer theft concurrent relative to her May 28 conviction after a jury trial.

The court also ordered restitution in the amount of $52,946 payable to Hotsprings Spas of NJ, LTD.

Harle has been incarcerated in the Ocean County Jail, Toms River, since she was convicted in May when she was found guilty of second-degree computer theft and third-degree theft after a five-week trial.

Between March of 2004 and August of 2007, Harle had inappropriately used the Hot Springs Spa credit card, paid her credit card bills and even paid $26,000 on her Volvo automobile with the company’s money.  Between June 2006 and July 2007, Harle accessed a computer or computer network for the purpose of paying over $6000 in her personal online bills with company funds, authorities said.

 The investigation against Harle began in late 2007 when the owners of Hot Spring Spas, went to the Ship Bottom Police Department to report suspected thefts.
