Former Bank Employee Sentenced for Bank Theft

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Erica File, 34, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for theft by a bank employee. The Honorable Laurie Smith Camp sentenced File to twelve months and one day of imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal prison system. After her release from prison, File will serve a five-year term of supervised release. File was also ordered to pay $12,143 in restitution to the bank, who reimbursed the unauthorized withdrawals.

In December 2017, federal agents began investigating suspicious withdrawals from an account at First Nebraska Bank in Fremont, Nebraska. The investigation showed that between August 2017 and December 2017, Erica File, a bank employee during that time period, and her husband, Marcus File, acted together to make unauthorized withdrawals from a customer’s account.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
