    A former school cafeteria worker in western Pennsylvania has been sentenced to six months house arrest and three years' probation for her part in stealing nearly $94,000.
     
    Court records show that 50-year-old Stacy Lee Shipley of Charleroi on Thursday paid $46,000 in restitution toward the $53,000 she owes the Charleroi school district.
     
    Investigators say Shipley stole the money when students paid cash for lunches and then used it to gamble at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino. Charleroi is about 30 miles south of Pittsburgh.
     
    Shipley allegedly shared the money with another former cafeteria worker, Shelia Ann Cook, who is scheduled for trial next month.
