Former Bank Teller Sentenced To Prison For Falsifying Records
PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of New Brighton, Pa., has been sentenced in federal court to 27 months in prison and five years supervised release on her conviction of false entries in a bank record, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.
Senior United States District Judge Maurice B. Cohill imposed the sentence on Shirley A. Howl, 56.
According to information presented to the court, Howl was the head teller for the West-Aircomm Federal Credit Union (FCU). Howl admitted falsifying records related with embezzling approximately $400,000 missing from West-Aircomm FCU from Aug. 7, 2007 through Nov. 9, 2009. Howl's falsification of records concealed the defalcations.
Assistant United States Attorney Paul E. Hull prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
U.S. Attorney Hickton commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Howl.
