West Virginia Woman Indicted For Allegedly Embezzling Nearly $250K From Elderly Clients Of Bank She Managed

From the Exponent-Telegram on 5/8/13:

CLARKSBURG — Federal grand jurors on Wednesday indicted a Lewis County Huntington National Bank official accused of embezzling nearly a quarter of a million dollars from middle age and elderly clients.

Deborah D. Radcliff, 51, of Weston, was among several indicted by the grand jury of Northern West Virginia residents, which met Tuesday and Wednesday in Clarksburg.

Radcliff was indicted on one count of embezzlement by a bank employee, and six counts of structuring. The indictment also seeks a forfeiture.

The defendant was branch manager of the Weston Huntington National Bank during the embezzlement, which occurred by at least July 1, 2011, through around Nov. 5, 2012, grand jurors alleged.

She used her position “to issue or direct to be issued cashier’s checks from funds withdrawn from depositors’ accounts issued in the name of the depositor,” the grand jury alleged.
