Former Bank Employee In Hawaii Sentenced For Embezzling $183K

Marylin P. DeMotta, 43, formerly of Hawaii, and currently of Las Vegas, Nevada, was sentenced to 4 months in prison for misappropriating $183,000 from the Hawaii Kai branch of American Savings Bank where she had been employed as a supervisor. DeMotta, who was originally indicted in December 2007, pleaded guilty last April to cashing two cashier's checks meant to pay a bank client's capital gains taxes, for her own benefit back in 2004. She is alleged to have stolen at least $304,000 from customer accounts over at least two years between 2004 and 2006.
