A former Leavenworth bank teller pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas, to embezzling from a savings and loan where she worked, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.
Theresa Williams, 49, Leavenworth, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of theft by a bank employee.
In her plea, she admitted she embezzled $13,000 from Mutual Savings Association in Leavenworth. To cover up the crime, she made false entries in bank reports.
Sentencing is set for Feb. 25. She faces a sentence of up to 30 years in federal prison and a fine up to $1 million.
McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jabari Wamble for their work on the case.
