U.S. District Court Judge Elizabeth E. Foote in Shreveport, La., on Tuesday sentenced Helen Godfrey-Smith, 34-year president/CEO of Shreveport Federal Credit Union, to 12 months of probation. She also was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine.

Godfrey-Smith pleaded guilty in December to making and using a false document related to an alleged multimillion-dollar fraud scheme by the CFO , leading to the credit union’s 2017 liquidation.
