MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — A Bay City woman has been sentenced to 11 years, eight months to 20 years in prison for taking part in an investment scheme that authorities say defrauded senior citizens out of at least $2 million.

Midland County Circuit Judge Stephen Karras on Thursday sentenced 40-year-old Shawn Dicken on nine felony charges for her role in the scheme. A jury convicted her March 13.

Dicken began working for The Diversified Group Advisory Firm LLC in 2011. Joel Wilson owned the former investment company and also faces charges.

Wilson was arrested in Germany in January.
