Teller Accused of Embezzling $700,000

Associated Press - December 17, 2015 6:30 am

The last of five defendants in the death of a Pittsburg State University student has been sentenced.

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A former teller has been indicted on charges of embezzling about $700,000 from an eastern Kansas bank.

The U.S. attorney’s office announced Wednesday that 47-year-old Denise Christy, of Burlington, faces charges that include embezzlement and money laundering. No attorney is listed for her in online court records.

The indictment alleges the crimes were committed while Christy worked for the Burlington branch of Central National Bank. One of Christy’s duties was to sell cash in the bank’s vault to the Federal Reserve Bank.

In May 2014 auditors determined that more than $700,000 was missing. An investigation showed Christy falsified bank records to cover up the embezzlement.

Christy is accused of spending more than $77,000 in embezzled funds to pay off loans.

When the old prisoner was being interview by a young reporter he was asked, “Why did you decide to steal from banks?” The old man replied, “‘Cause that’s where the money was”.

The sad fact or happy fact depending how you view this is she will get little prison time if any, will have time to repay the money. Then she will file chapter 7 and be done with it all. If she was smart enough to hide the money if she has any left and life will go on. I have seen this happen time and again around our area with these women that do this.
