Karen York, the former president of the $8.9 million VA Hospital Federal Credit Union in Little Rock, Ark., pleaded guilty this week to embezzling more than $62,000 over 12 years.

In U.S. District Court in Little Rock, York admitted Monday that she engaged in a check kiting scheme and made false deposit entries to her account, according to federal prosecutors. She also admitted to falsifying records to hide the fact that funds were missing from the credit union.
