Hisey gets 31 years; 9 years suspended in scrapyard theft case
Penny K. Hisey, who was found guilty of swindling more than $800,000 from Rochester Iron and Metal over a three-year period, was led out of Fulton Superior Court in handcuffs Wednesday.

Fulton Superior Judge Wayne Steele handed Hisey a sentence of 31 years, with nine suspended, and five years probation. Hisey was also ordered to pay $949,413.85 in restitution to the local scrapyard, from which she was fired in early 2015 after company officials discovered she was stealing cash and producing fraudulent payout tickets to cover her tracks.
