NCUA Bars Seven from Credit Union Activities
The NCUA in August issued orders prohibiting seven individuals in six states from future involvement with any federally insured financial institution, the agency said Friday.
Colbert Bryan, former manager of Credit Union Business Capital LLC, an institution-affiliated party of Eastern Financial Credit Union in Miramar, Fla., consented to the issuance of a prohibition order to avoid the time, cost and expense of administrative litigation.
Autumn Rene Guillot, a former employee of Credit Union of the Rockies in Golden, Colo., pleaded guilty to the charge of theft of $20,000 or more. Guillot was sentenced to 60 months community corrections and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $275,795.
Tania Jackson, a former employee of VyStar Credit Union in Jacksonville, Fla., pleaded guilty to the charge of defrauding a financial institution. Jackson was sentenced to 12 months in prison and ordered to pay court costs.
Kathleen Maheux, a former employee of Rainbow Federal Credit Union in Lewiston, Maine, pleaded guilty to the charge of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer. Maheux received two years deferred disposition and was ordered to complete 100 hours of public service.
Sharon Maston, a former employee of Sturdy Credit Union in Attleboro, Mass., pleaded guilty to the charge of larceny over $250 and forgery of a check. Maston was sentenced to one year in prison and five years of probation.
Johanna Mite, a former employee of UFCW Local 342 Federal Credit Union in Mineola, N.Y., was found guilty of felony bank fraud. Mite was sentenced to time served, five years supervised release and restitution in the amount of $382,790.
Laura Powers, a former employee of Parker Community Credit Union in Janesville, Wis., was convicted of theft in a business setting and unauthorized use of an individual’s identity for obtaining money. Powers was sentenced to five years in prison, five years of supervised release and restitution in the amount of $692,869.75.
The seven orders bring the number of NCUA prohibitions to 45 for 2013, the agency said.
