Linda Schrenko

Former Georgia schools superintendent Linda Schrenko has been sentenced to eight years in prison. Schrenko pleaded guilty in May to fraud and money laundering after defrauding the public of $600,000 of federal education money. The money -- intended for deaf and honors students -- were funneled into her 2002 campaign for governor and spent on a face lift.

In the middle of her trial, Schrenko struck a plea deal in exchange for testifying against her co-defendants. In the binding agreement, she agreed to serve eight years in prison.

A judge in Atlanta today also ordered the 56-year-old Schrenko to pay more than $414,000 in restitution for her role in an embezzlement scheme.
