CULPEPER, Va. (AP) - A woman convicted of taking money from a West Virginia racetrack and casino is asking a judge to postpone the seizure of her home in Virginia.

Fifty-year-old Anita Ambler of Reva is appealing her conviction in federal court in West Virginia. Her attorney, Stephen Herdon, says in a court filing that her house shouldn't be seized by the government until the appeals process is completed.

The Culpeper Star-Exponent reported the filing.

Ambler was convicted in April on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and transacting criminal proceeds. Prosecutors say she took more than $1 million in horse racing funds from Mountaineer Race Track & Gaming Resort in Chester, W.Va., while working there.

She was sentenced in July to more than seven years in prison.
