It is hard for me to believe that this was a one time crime. She obliviously had worked for Huntington for quite some time before working in the downtown branch of Kalamazoo. I am sure if they really looked into it they would find that she was doing this prior and managed to go uncaught. It amazes me that we entrust our money to the bank only to have one of their own employees stealing from the customers. Shameful that this woman targeted an elderly man with memory problems as one of her victims. She knew what she was doing and I think her punishment should fit the crime. She does not look remorseful and deserves to serve time for this fraud.
