U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn also ordered Kerry Gerdes, 27, to pay $24,555 restitution for the salary she was paid to perform the work.
Gerdes pleaded guilty last August to filing 80 such reports from December 2006 through May 2007. She was caught through a random quality control check. Authorities said no one got hired who should not have been put on the payroll.
