Ex-teller admits stealing $2M from Illinois bank

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - A central Illinois woman has pleaded guilty to embezzling nearly $2 million from the bank where she worked as head teller.

Sixty-two-year-old Nancy J. Huskins of Lincoln pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of bank embezzlement in federal court in Springfield.

Huskins worked at the State Bank of Lincoln from 1996 until November of last year.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in central Illinois says she admitted stealing the money over that period and using it for her personal spending.

As head teller, Huskins had access to the bank's vault.

According to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, she concealed the theft by manipulating audits.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 10.

Huskins faces up to 30 years in prison and could be ordered to pay full restitution.
