Bangor, Maine: United States Attorney Thomas E. Delahanty II announced that Brittany
A. Mace, 24, of Stockton Springs, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court in Bangor
by Judge D. Brock Hornby to eight months of imprisonment for bank embezzlement. The court
directed that seven months of the sentence be satisfied by home detention, imposed five years of
supervised release and ordered the defendant to pay almost $26,000 in restitution. The defendant
pleaded guilty to the charge on November 14, 2013.

Court records reveal that the defendant was a teller at Bangor Saving Bank. From about
August 23, 2010, to about November 3, 2011, the defendant stole almost $26,000 from the
accounts of 48 bank customers, many of whom were elderly and some of whom had dementia.
The bank discovered the embezzlement in 2011 and reimbursed customers for their losses.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
