A federal judge sentenced a former pharmaceutical sales representative from San Antonio to more than two years in prison Thursday and ordered her to pay $1.7 million in restitution for her part in a national $8.8 million bribery/health care fraud scheme.
But Senior U.S. District Judge Fred Biery, citing humanitarian reasons, allowed Holly Blakely, 46, to stay out on bond to get her affairs in order. She must turn herself in to the U.S. Marshals Service on June 15 to begin her prison term.
He sentenced her to 30 months in prison. She had faced a maximum of five years. She also will be required to stay under supervision for three years after she completes her prison term.
