Former Lubbock banker appeals, trying to clear his name

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A former Lubbock banker is trying to clear his name. On Wednesday, Tom Darden filed a notice of appeal.

Darden was convicted by a jury of bank fraud along with Frank and Rick Thompson and former Lubbock ISD School Board Trustee Monte Hasie. Hasie's conviction was overturned by U.S. Judge Sam Cummings. Frank Thompson had to serve a six month sentence. 

The men were accused of defrauding First State Bank and State National Bank out of approximately $2.5 million by their actions dating back to 1999. In 2006, Cummings ruled that the bank did not ultimately lose any money.

Darden has long since been released from federal custody.  Back in May, he filed a motion to vacate his prison sentence. The judge ruled that he waited too long and denied his request.

Darden does not yet have to lay out the specific reasons for his appeal.  The notice of appeal only states that he is challenging the judge's order.
