Former bank employee sentenced for embezzling

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 42-year-old Neosho County woman has been sentenced to about a year in federal prison for embezzling more than $278,000 from a bank branch and two customers.

The office of U.S. Attorney for Kansas said in a release Monday that Sherrie Landell of Erie, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of embezzlement by a bank employee and admitted that from September 2007 to May 2013 she embezzled from Exchange State Bank. She worked at the bank's branch in St. Paul, Kansas.

Landell's also accused of fraudulently altering the bank's records to conceal the crime.

The prosecutor's office says the shortage was discovered during a bank regulatory exam and subsequent audit in 2013.
