BOSTON (AP) — The former assistant manager of a Mansfield bank has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for making more than $120,000 in unauthorized withdrawals from customer accounts, and using the money to buy a luxury car and other items.
Kathleen Didonato of Foxborough was also sentenced on Wednesday to four years of probation and ordered to pay restitution. She pleaded guilty in December to bank fraud charges.
Prosecutors say Didonato began withdrawing funds from the North Easton Savings Bank in October 2010 and continued until February 2011, when the fraud was discovered and she was fired.
Auditors identified 126 fraudulent transactions linked to Didonato involving withdrawals of cash or bank checks and withdrawals from customer CD accounts, which she then tried to cover up by manipulating records.
