Marla Deptula of Sayreville received a 20-month sentence and Rose Crabbe of Plainfield received 15 months in federal court in Trenton on Thursday.

Both women had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud. Deptula also pleaded guilty to subscribing to a false tax return.

They admitted writing checks to themselves from the Edison-based law firm’s accounts and using the money to pay credit card bills, taxes and child care expenses. The U.S. Attorney’s Office alleges hey tried to hide the scheme by altering the law firm’s accounting records.

Deptula will be required to pay $705,000 and Crabbe will have to pay $74,000 in restitution.
