Youngstown woman indicted on embezzlement by bank employee
A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging Danielle Ladigo, age 28, of Youngstown, Ohio, with one count of theft, embezzlement, or misapplication by bank officer or employee, said Steven M. Dettelbach, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
The indictment charges that from January 2008 through December 2009, Danielle Ladigo, an employee of Huntington National Bank, embezzled moneys belonging to Huntington National Bank in an amount greater than $1,000, the deposits of which were insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, by taking cash while loading the bank’s cash dispensing machines (CDMs).
The indictment was presented to the grand jury by Assistant United States Attorney Christos N. Georgalis after an investigation by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after a review of factors unique to the case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense, and the characteristics of the violation. In all cases the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and in most cases it will be less than the maximum.
An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
