LUBBOCK, Texas (CN) – A former BBVA Compass Bank employee was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison for stealing more than $174,000 from the bank, federal prosecutors said.
Priscilla Delarosa, 32, of Lamesa, was given the maximum sentence under federal sentencing guidelines. It included an enhancement for abuse of position of trust/special skill and another enhancement for obstruction of justice. She also was ordered to pay more than $174,000 in restitution to the bank, which employed her at its Big Spring branch.
Delarosa was convicted in March of misapplication of bank funds, fraud with an access device and making false statements.
Delarosa used a customer’s debit card to defraud the bank from November 2009 to November 2010, prosecutors said. Then she lied about it to a Secret Service special agent.
