ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A 50-year-old Nevada woman has been sentenced in Alaska for fraud.

Rebecca Martinez of Las Vegas was sentenced Friday to nine months in jail in Anchorage after pleading guilty to first-degree theft.

The Anchorage Daily News ( ) says Martinez also was sentenced to five years of probation following the jail term and ordered to pay the state more than $50,000 in restitution.

State prosecutors say Martinez illegally received $42,000 in public assistance benefits and more than $5,000 in dividends for herself and her children from the Alaska Permanent Fund, the state's oil savings account.

Assistant Attorney General Clint Campion says Martinez' 34-year-old daughter, Monica Martinez of Las Vegas, was sentenced in July to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay more than $40,000 for similar crimes in Anchorage.
