Cynthia Luna Rodriguez, 45 years old, pleaded guilty this past January (2018) to stealing more than $1 million from customer accounts over an eight-year span. Her sentencing is set for April 11, 2018. Rodriguez faces up to 30 years in federal prison and a possible fine of $1 million.
The other former bank employee convicted of bank theft (like Rodriguez, she opted for a plea bargain), Jill Marie Myers, was set for sentencing this past Monday, March 5th, but once again, her sentencing has been postponed. Her attorney filed a motion for continuance March 1st, which was granted by Federal Judge Micaela Alvarez.
