  Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni announced that Jennifer Ambrosino, 42, was sentenced to three years in prison. She was also ordered to pay $100,000 in restitution by Superior Court Judge Paul X. Escandon.

  The Point Pleasant resident had pleaded guilty to second degree Theft by Unlawful Taking back in April for stealing from her previous employment between January 2012 and June 2017.
