A federal judge sentenced former chief operating officer Suzanne Silva to 18 months in prison for stealing from a New York credit union hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for Caribbean cruises and monthly Amazon purchases.

U.S. District Judge Denis R. Hurley in Central Islip, N.Y. also ordered Silva, 35, of Carle Place, to pay $465,172 in restitution, the amount she stole from the $30.6 million Winthrop University Employees Federal Credit Union in Mineola.
