NCUA Bans Five Former Credit Union Employees
The NCUA handed down five prohibition orders Wednesday, barring their recipients from participating in the affairs of any federally insured financial institution.
Ashley Lynne Jackson, a former employee of the $415 million PrimeWay Federal Credit Union of Houston, was convicted of theft. Jackson was sentenced to nine months in prison with a credit of 54 days, and three years’ probation.
Mark A. Keilig, a former manager of the $36 million United Northwest Federal Credit Union of Norton, Kan., consented to the issuance of the prohibition order to avoid the time, cost, and expense of administrative litigation.
According to U.S. District Court records, Keilig allegedly “exceeded his authority and approved a number of unauthorized loans without the approval or knowledge of the credit union’s board of directors” and internally kited checks.
Norielyn Galbadores Bautista, a former employee of the $14 million Pacific Advantage Federal Credit Union, Burlingame, Calif., was convicted of grand theft, unauthorized use of personal identifying information of another person, and forgery and counterfeiting.
Bautista was sentenced to four years and three months in prison with a credit of 629 days and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $451,198.67. Pacific Advantage was merged into the $351 million SkyOne Federal Credit Union of Hawthorne, Calif. in 2010.
Stacy A. Mergelkamp, a former employee of the $112 million Catholic & Community Credit Union of Shiloh, Ill., was convicted of theft, embezzlement and misapplication by credit union officer or employees.
Mergelkamp was sentenced to six months in prison, five years of supervised release, and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $38,120.
Wanda Hasbrouck, a former employee of the $35 million Morton R. Lane State University Federal Credit Union of Buffalo, N.Y., was convicted of grand larceny. Hasbrouck was sentenced to five years’ probation and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $23,350.
