Brittany Chalayne Johnson
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A former credit union worker was sentenced to five years in prison after her conviction in May for making multiple fraudulent withdrawals from customers' accounts, according to a news release from the State Attorney's Office.
Brittany Chalayne Johnson, 27, was charged with two counts of defrauding a financial institution by schemes, two counts of criminal use of personal identification information, and two counts of grand theft.
A jury found Johnson guilty on all six counts and she will serve her sentences concurrently.
Between March and September 2011, suspicious withdrawal activity occurred on customer accounts with Community First Credit Union, where Johnson was employed. She accessed two elderly customers' accounts and used it to conduct the crimes.
Johnson listed herself as a beneficiary on one of the accounts, allowing her to make withdrawals, and then removed her name from the records after. Her final fraudulent withdrawal took place on her last day of employment.
Following her five-year prison sentence, Johnson must also serve five years of probation and pay $32,200 in restitution to Community First Credit Union.
