Wyoming credit union employee sentenced

A former employee for a Wyoming credit union was sentenced on March 7 after admitting to embezzling more than $30,000.

Maureen Hall, 59, of Cheyenne, Wyo., pleaded guilty to one count of credit union embezzlement. U.S. District Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal sentenced Hall to one day in prison and one-day credit for time served, three years of supervised released. She also was ordered to pay restitution of $5,180.

From October 2014 to September 2015, Hall embezzled $30,657 while working in the accounting department for the Warren Federal Credit Union, which is now the $906 million Blue Federal Credit Union in Cheyenne.

“Hall used her position to issue stop payments on stale official checks, which she then had re-issued to herself,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric J. Heimann, said. “She deposited the re-issued checks into her personal accounts.”
