Bank Teller Gets Diversion In Money Laundering Case

Joe Denoyer - September 17, 2016 9:21 pm

A federal judge has approved a diversion agreement for a small town bank teller caught up in the prosecution of an alleged conspiracy to launder drug money for a Mexican cartel in Kansas.
The government and the defense for Kathy Shelman asked the court Friday to defer prosecution for 12 months. The former Plains State Bank teller is charged with failing file a report on suspicious banking activity.
Her attorney, Jim Pratt, says the agreement means that if she stays out of trouble, a motion will be filed at the end of that time to dismiss the charge.
Trial begins Oct. 26 against former Plains State Bank President James Kirk Friend and customers, George and Agatha Enns of Meade.
The couple deposited more than $6.8 million between 2011 and 2014.
