Repeat embezzler sentenced in church theft

A woman with a history of theft will serve prison time in the embezzlement of more than $73,000 from a Portland church.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports 63-year-old Christine Marie Culver has to repay money taken as part of her three-year prison sentence.
She said Friday during sentencing that she was sexually and emotionally abused as a child, and that she has low self-esteem.
Culver said she spent the church's money on herself and gifts for friends.
She previously spent 13 months in prison after being convicted on charges in the embezzlement of $225,000 from the city of Molalla, where she worked.
Prosecutor Ryan Lufkin said it's typically unusual for offenders to repeat these types of crimes.
