A 51-year-old York woman has been given one to two years in prison for attempted insurance fraud.

Online court records say Susan Schulz was sentenced last week. She'd pleaded no contest in February after making a deal with prosecutors.

Judge Robert Steinke said at Schulz's sentencing that she wasn't a good candidate for probation, given her criminal history.

Prosecutors say Schulz called the York County Sheriff's Department in September to report that her house had been broken into while she was gone. She said painkillers, a DVD player, a laptop computer, $1,200 in cash, jewelry, an Xbox and a camera had been taken.

The investigator became suspicious because the house wasn't ransacked.
