OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Selling fake shares of Facebook stock will send an Oshkosh woman to prison for seven years.

That's the sentence handed down Wednesday to 46-year-old Marianne Oleson.

Oleson was initially charged with over 50 counts, but as part of a plea deal, she pleaded no contest to some of the charges, while prosecutors dropped the others.

Oleson was arrested for scamming people before the actual Facebook stock went on sale earlier this year.
