UPDATE: Stacey Pomrenke's sentence reportedly reduced

Records show 11 months shaved off her sentence

The former chief financial officer for Bristol Virginia Utilities convicted last summer of corruption and fraud is reportedly getting a reduction in her prison sentence.

Stacey Pomrenke, 44, was found guilty by a jury in August and received a sentence of 34 months- that's two years and 10 months- by Judge James Jones.

But now prison records obtained by News 5 show an early release date of June 2018. That is 11 months early.

A check of federal records in U.S. District Court in Abingdon show no order by the court of early release.

It's a decision apparently made at the discretion of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Pomrenke reported to Alderson, West Virginia Minimum Security Prison Camp on September 26.

An official with the Federal Bureau of Prison's Office of Public Affairs contacted News 5 via email on Wednesday evening and said they are looking into Pomrenke's release date but would not have a response available until Thursday.

She is one of eight former executives of the public utility, including former contractors, board members and legal counsel, to receive prison time in a corruption scandal that has cost the public utility millions.
