Utah Woman Pleads Guilty To Embezzling Nearly $300K From Bank
From the Salt Lake Tribune on 2/5/2015:
A former loan officer has been ordered to repay Wells Fargo Bank $297,000 that she admitted embezzling.
Christal Mawson is required to pay a minimum of $200 a month and no interest, based on an analysis of her ability to pay.
A felony charge of embezzlement by a bank employee was filed against her in December of 2013 in U.S. District Court. She pleaded guilty in October of last year, admitting that she embezzled from a Wells Fargo branch in Salt Lake City from February of 2008 to January of 2013.
In lieu of prison, Mawson was placed on probation for five years.
