A woman convicted of taking money from a West Virginia racetrack and casino is asking a judge to postpone the seizure of her home in Virginia.
The Culpeper Star-Exponent reported the filing.
Ambler was convicted in April on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and transacting criminal proceeds. Prosecutors say she took more than $1 million in horse racing funds from Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort in Chester, W.Va., while working there.
She was sentenced in July to more than seven years in prison.
