NCUA Issues Three Prohibition Orders
The NCUA issued three prohibition orders in November that ban three former credit unions employees from participating in any affairs at federally insured financial institutions.
Carrie Bomyea, a former employee of the $182 million Glass City Federal Credit Union in Maumee, Ohio; Armelinda Castillo, a former employee of the $59 million WesTex Federal Credit Union in Lubbock, Texas, and Yolanda O’Keefe, a former employee of the $21 million Connecticut Community Credit Union in Pawcatuck, Conn., each received an order from the NCUA.
Bomyea pleaded guilty to an embezzlement charge and was sentenced to 18 months in jail, five years supervised release and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $199,576.35, according to the NCUA.
Castillo was convicted of misapplication of funds by a bank employee, which resulted in a 37-month prison sentence, five years of supervised release and restitution in the amount of $690,000, the agency said last week.
O’Keefe has entered into a pretrial rehabilitation program after being charged of larceny.
“O’Keefe was ordered to attend and complete a Gamblers Anonymous program, stay away from the credit union’s premises, complete 50 hours of community service and prohibited from all casinos,” the NCUA press release said.
Violating a prohibition order is considered a felony offense that results in jail time and a fine of up to $1 million.
Users are able to search prohibition and administrative orders by name, institution, city, state and year on the NCUA website.
