Amite Woman Sentenced for Theft of Bank Funds

U.S. Attorney Kenneth A. Polite announced that ANGELA LEMOINE, 43, of Amite, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to a one-count Bill of Information charging her with theft of funds.

U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier sentenced LEMOINE to three years probation and 50 hours of community service.

According court documents, from approximately November 2005 until approximately March 1, 2013, LEMOINE worked for First NBC Bank as a manager at the Kentwood Branch.
