Lynn Morris, a former paralegal specialist for the FBI in San Diego, was sentenced Monday to two years in prison for embezzling government funds.

The 56-year-old misused hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of government funds from the FBI’s San Diego Asset Forfeiture Unit. 

Morris used about $250,000 in government funds for personal use from July 2014 to November 2016, the Department of Justice said.

“Lynn Morris abused her position for personal gain and betrayed the trust of her FBI colleagues,” the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Special Agent in Charge James Cheng said in a news release.

In addition to taking more than $250,000 from two separate  Asset Forfeiture Unit accounts, she stole more than $26,000 from FBI evidence rooms, according to the Justice Department.

Morris was the coordinator for the Asset Forfeiture Unit accounts.
