A former Fairmont State University official will spend more than three years in prison for embezzling from the school.
The Exponent Telegram reports that the 45-year-old Parkersburg resident was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Elkins to 46 months in prison.
Prosecutors say Tamm used various methods to buy computer switches and then resold them for cash.
Tamm had served as vice president and the university's chief information officer since 2008. His employment was terminated in April 2013.
