An immigrant who worked for the Roman Catholic Church in Kalamazoo has been sentenced to 33 months in federal prison for stealing fees from other immigrants. The government says Monica Mazei concealed the scheme by failing to open files for certain people and persuading them to give cash or blank checks. Mazei was ordered to pay $59,000 to her victims Monday, four months after pleading guilty to fraud. She worked in the Kalamazoo Diocese's immigration assistance program. Mazei is a native of Ecuador who became a naturalized U.S. citizen.

Michigan's new attorney general is preparing to provide updates about state investigations of the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal, Flint's water crisis and clergy abuse in the Roman Catholic church.

Dana Nessel took charge of the office in January. She will update reporters Thursday.

All three probes began under her predecessor, Bill Schuette.

The office is investigating Michigan State University's handling of Nassar , a former campus doctor convicted of molesting young athletes. A former school president is among those facing charges.
