United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Bank Fraud, Bank Embezzlement, Access Device Fraud, and Aggravated Identity Theft.
Terri Jo Huber, age 43, was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 13, 2013. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge John E. Simko on August 21, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is 30 years’ imprisonment, a $1,000,000 fine, or both; up to 5 years on supervised release, an additional 3 years of supervised release upon revocation; and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
At the time of the alleged crimes, Huber was employed as an Escalation Specialist at the Citibank facility in Sioux Falls. In that capacity, Huber had computer access to the account information of customers who had credit cards with Citibank.
The charges are merely accusations and Huber is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Sioux Falls Police Department and the U.S. Secret Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Dennis R. Holmes is prosecuting the case.
Huber was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
