11/22/2013

 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. From 2008 to July 24, 2010, while Cravens worked at Western State Bank in Ulysses, she and two co-defendants embezzled approximately $84,200. On July 24, 2010, Cravens aided and abetted a staged bank robbery. Subsequent to the staged bank robbery, Cravens and co-defendants embezzled another $24,450 from the bank.
 
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.
 
Co-defendants are:
Amber Gutierrez, who is set for sentencing Feb. 4.
Hattie Wiginton, who is set for jury trial Dec. 17.
Linda Wise, who is set for jury trial Dec. 17.
