Former Credit Union Employee Sentenced for $34,000 Embezzlement

KANSAS CITY, KAN. - A former credit union employee in Overland Park was sentenced today to three years supervised release for embezzling from the credit union where she worked, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said. In addition, she was ordered to pay $34,035 in restitution.

Susan Wooten-Robb, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud. In her plea, she admitted the crime occurred while she worked for Community America Credit Union at 5601 W. 95th in Overland Park, Kan. In February 2014 two account holders complained about unauthorized debits from their accounts. Investigation revealed Wooten-Robb had made unauthorized debits totaling $34,035. In one instance, she attempted to cover up an unauthorized debit by filing a false currency transaction report claiming the account holders took out the money to assist a family member with paying tuition

Beall commended the U.S. Secret Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jabari Wamble for their work on the case.
