A Brick woman who stole over a million dollars from her former employer while working as a bookkeeper will spend the next six years in state prison.

Virginia DeBerri received the sentence Friday following a guilty plea in January to theft by unlawful taking.

She was accused of writing over 500 unauthorized checks for herself over five years and putting them in her personal bank account.

As a new school year begins, a growing number of districts in jersey are revisiting the issue of homework, and how much is too much.

New Jersey small business owners are being asked to provide feedback to the SBA and administrator Linda McMahon in Washington on what practices need to be expanded or which ones prevent growth.

New jersey district director for the SBA, Al Titone, says the more people voice concern over something, the better chance it has to be changed.

“If we get enough of the same complaint, the administrator (McMahon) can go to the president and say, ‘hey, in addition to our stuff, these are other things we’ve heard’,” said Titone.
