A federal judge ordered a former president/CEO, Phillip Brian Topping, to begin his 42-month prison sentence in July for embezzling $267,000 from the $1.1 million New Pilgrim Federal Credit Union in Birmingham, Ala.

During a sentencing hearing last week, U.S. District Court Judge R. David Proctor in Birmingham also ordered Topping to pay restitution of $255,000 to CUNA Mutual Group (CMG) and $20,440 to NPFCU.
