Sioux Falls Woman Sentenced In Embezzlement Case

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, woman convicted of Bank Embezzlement was sentenced on March 6, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Kellie Cunningham, age 28, was sentenced to time served (one day) and 3 years of supervised release.  She was also ordered to make restitution in the amount of $5,600.

Cunningham was indicted for Bank Embezzlement by a federal grand jury on August 13, 2013.  She pled guilty on December 4, 2013.

Between May 2012 and March 2013, Cunningham was employed as a bank teller.  During this timeframe, she stole money from her teller drawer for personal use and took steps to conceal the theft.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann M. Hoffman prosecuted the case.
