From U. S. Department of Justice:

LUBBOCK, Texas — Priscilla Delarosa, 32, who was convicted at trial in March of embezzling from her employer, Compass Bank, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 46 months in federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.  Judge Cummings sentenced Delarosa at the top of her sentencing guideline range, which included an enhancement for abuse of position of trust/special skill and an enhancement for obstruction of justice.  In addition, Judge Cummings ordered that Delarosa pay $174,282 in restitution to the victim, BBVA Compass Bank.  Delarosa has been in federal custody since she was remanded following her conviction.

At trial, Delarosa, a resident of Lamesa, Texas, was convicted on one count of misapplication of bank funds by a bank employee, one count of fraud in connection with an access device and one count of making false statements.  The government presented evidence that while she was employed at Compass Bank in Big Spring, Texas, Delarosa embezzled more than $170,000 from the bank. 

In addition, from November 2009 to November 2010, Delarosa used a customer's debit card to defraud the bank and receive money, goods, services and other things of value.  She also made false statements to a Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service when she denied making transactions on a customer's account at the bank where she worked, when, as she well knew, she did.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda R. Burch and Deputy Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Denise Williams, of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Lubbock, Texas, prosecuted.
