Eight former CU employees under prohibition orders
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (8/13/09)--The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) has issued orders prohibiting eight individuals from participating in the business of any federally insured financial institution. In one order, former First Delta FCU employee Nikita Brown was sentenced to 78 months in prison, five years of probation, and $1.46 million in restitution after she was convicted of bank fraud and embezzlement. Jacqueline Tribou and Robyn Mullen-Turner, who formerly served at Eastern Maine Medical Center FCU and GPM CU, respectively, will serve comparatively light sentences for theft. Former Prince Kuhio FCU manager Roselle Farias, who was also convicted of bank fraud, will serve a 16-month term and will pay over $96,000 in restitution. Another former manager, Gisela Rivera Rosado of Newark, N.J.-based La Casa FCU, will serve a six-month house arrest term, five years of probation, and will pay $120,000 in restitution for embezzlement. Jorge Fleitas, formerly of Louisville, Ky.'s Beacon Community CU, will serve two years in prison, three years of probation, and will pay over $19,000 in restitution. He was convicted of conspiracy to commit mail and bank fraud, as well as aggravated identity theft. Eve Hutchinson, formerly of New York’s Buffalo Fire Department FCU, will also serve a light sentence following her conviction on grand larceny charges, but will pay $72,000 in restitution. Former New Alliance FCU teller Susan Bender signed an injunction without admitting or denying fault. Violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million.
