A former Girl Scout executive will serve a three-month sentence after she entered a guilty plea to embezzling nearly $23,000. Linda Carne of Goochland County appeared before a judge this week who suspended all but three months of a five-year sentence. Carne served as CEO of the Girl Scouts of Virginia from April 2010 to December 2011. Goochland prosecutors say the 62-year-old used a credit card that the Girl Scouts paid for to cover stays in luxury hotels, baseball game tickets, spa services and the rental of a North Carolina beach house.
