Update: South Carolina Bank Exec Gets 18 Months For $600+K Embezzlement

Donna B. Beardsley, 46, of Greenwood, South Carolina, and the former bank manager at Carolina First Bank, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for embezzling more than $612,000 from the financial institution. She had pleaded guilty last December to stealing the money between April 2007 and July 2008, and that she used the funds to purchase land, make home improvements and pay off credit card debts. She has reportedly repaid about $210,000, but must make a full restitution as ordered by the judge.
