Vicki L. Perchinske, 52, of Plain Township, Ohio, has been sentenced to 4 years in prison for embezzling at least $535,000 from FirstMerit Bank where she had been employed.  According to authorities, over a period of nearly six years, from December 8, 2004 through September 9, 2010, Perchinske transferred funds from mostly elderly bank customer accounts, into her own accounts for her own benefit.  Perchinske, who was originally indicted in April 2011 on seven felony counts, pleaded guilty this past August to one count of bank fraud.
