New Jersey Woman Sentenced For Embezzling $260K From Bank

From Newsday on 11/24/2014:

A former bank manager who embezzled more than $260,000 has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Season Wengert, of Franklinville, will also have to serve three years of supervised release once she's freed. She had pleaded guilty in August to a bank embezzlement charge.

Prosecutors say the thefts occurred between September 2007 and January 2013, when the 32-year-old Wengert was branch manager of a southern New Jersey bank. But they haven't said what the money was used for.
Prosecutors say Wengert stole $263,864 by fraudulently conducting online computer transfers of money from 38 accounts belonging to 23 customers into accounts owned by her or her husband. She also withdrew money from customers' accounts and deposited it into her accounts.

The 32-year-old Wengert also must pay $261,654 in restitution.
