Bank Employee Charged with Embezzling from Employer

PITTSBURGH – A resident of Indiana, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of embezzling from a federally insured bank, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The one-count indictment, returned on Dec. 13, named Madeline Isenberg, 36, of Indiana, Pennsylvania, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, from in or around February 2012 until in or around August 2015, Isenberg, while employed as an Assistant Manager for First Commonwealth Bank, embezzled approximately $88,000.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of thirty years in prison, a fine of $1,000,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Lee J. Karl is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
