LAWRENCE – A former manager of Jayhawk Federal Credit Union has been sentenced to three years of probation for embezzling from the Lawrence institution.
Karolyn J. Stattelman, 43, of Topeka, also was ordered Tuesday to pay more than $173,600 in restitution.
Federal prosecutors say Stattelman manipulated credit union accounts for money orders, share drafts, ATM and returned checks in order to conceal the thefts.
Teller Christi Marie Hout also was allowed to write checks on her personal and business accounts when she did not have sufficient funds to cover them. Hout pleaded guilty to one count of theft of credit union funds. She is set for sentencing Jan. 7.
