KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP) - A former teller at a northeast Kansas bank will spend 10 months in home confinement for embezzling more than $27,000 from the bank.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 23-year-old Brittney L. Crane will also serve two years of supervised release under the sentence she received Monday.
Crane worked at a branch of US Bank in Kansas City, Kan. In a guilty plea she entered in August, she admitted processing forged counter withdrawal slips totaling $27,700 in late 2011.
A video recording of one transaction showed her processing a forged withdrawal slip for 20-year-old Cierra Clayborn at a drive-thru window. Investigators said the two women met later in the day to split up the money.
Clayborn, also of Kansas City, Kan., has pleaded guilty to bank embezzlement and faces sentencing Dec. 3.
