    The former Weybridge town clerk and treasurer who pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $400,000 from the town was sentenced Thursday to serve two years in federal prison.

    In a hearing afternoon in U.S. District Court in Rutland, Judge Christina Reiss sentenced Karen Brisson, 50, of Weybridge to two years in prison and three years of released supervision.
