A 40-year-old Lincoln woman who was given probation after embezzling from a bank has been sentenced to prison for stealing from a marketing company she helped found.

Tammy Schomaker on Tuesday was given three to five years in a Nebraska prison. She'd been convicted of stealing nearly $155,000 from Synerg Marketing between July 2006 and March 19, 2009. Prosecutors say she used bookkeeping software to write checks to herself while pretending they were going to creditors.

The company has since closed.

Judge Karen Flowers noted that Schomaker, also known as Tammy Sigwing, was given federal probation for committing a similar crime and getting $11,000 from a bank in 1996.

Flowers says Schomaker's latest conviction "cries out for a prison sentence, it just does."
