    A Virginia woman got 12 years of money for doing nothing.

    But the Norfolk agency that kept paying the woman just returned more than $186,000 to the federal government.

    The money is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' share of the salary Jill McGlone received from the Community Services Board after she was placed on paid suspension in 1998.

    McGlone continued to collect pay and benefits until May 2010.

    The Virginian-Pilot says Executive Director Maureen Womack told the agency's board of trustees Tuesday that federal officials believed the case was a misappropriation of federal funds.
