NCUA Prohibits Three From Future CU Work
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (12/2/13)--The National Credit Union Administration has banned three former credit union employees from participating in the affairs of any federally insured financial institution.

The NCUA said the orders involve the following individuals:
  • Carrie Bomyea, a former Glass City FCU, Maumee, Ohio, employee who pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges. Bomyea was sentenced to 18 months in prison, five years supervised release and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $199,576.35;
  • Armelinda Castillo, a former WesTex FCU, Lubbock, Texas, employee who was convicted of misapplication of funds by a bank employee. Castillo was sentenced to 37 months in prison, five years supervised release and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $690,000; and
  • Yolanda O'Keefe, a former Connecticut Community CU, Pawcatuck, Conn., employee who entered into a pretrial rehabilitation program for the charge of larceny. O'Keefe has been ordered to attend and complete a Gamblers Anonymous program, stay away from the credit union's premises, and complete 50 hours of community service. She is also prohibited from all casinos.
Violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million.

NCUA web site users can now access a new tool for searching agency administrative actions. Through the new tool, they can search prohibition and administrative orders by name, institution, city, state and year, the agency said.
