 A second former bank employee has pleaded guilty to embezzling from a bank in Grant County, Kan., and helping stage a robbery to cover up the theft, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

 
Ashley Cravens, 29, Ulysses, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of theft from a bank. In her plea, she admitted that she and other former bank employees embezzled from the bank and staged a robbery.

Cravens is set for sentencing Feb. 7. She faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.

Amber Gutierrez, who is set for sentencing Feb. 4.
