A federal judge on Tuesday sentenced a Churchill woman to nine months of home confinement for filing a false tax return.

Jennifer Falbo, 42, pleaded guilty in July to reporting less than half of the 2003 gross receipts of Pittsburgh Lawn Care, which she owns with her husband.

The Falbos reported the gross receipts as $138,401 when they were actually $314,073, prosecutors say.

Michael J. Falbo, 41, pleaded guilty in April and U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose sentenced him to 18 months in prison and one year of probation.

Ambrose sentenced Jennifer Falbo to five years of probation with the first nine months under house arrest.
