BUFFALO, N.Y.–U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul, Jr. announced today that Latisha Siplin, 32, of Buffalo, NY, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Chief Judge William M. Skretny to violating terms of her supervised release. The charge carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie P. Grisanti, who handled the case, stated that Siplin was previously convicted of bank fraud and sentenced to eight months in prison. Following her release, the defendant violated conditions of supervised release by testing positive for drugs.

Sentencing is scheduled for December 30, 2014, at 9:00 a.m. before Judge Skretny.
