CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- A former manager of Huntington National Bank's Weston branch has pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $247,000, mostly from senior citizens.
Fifty-one-year-old Deborah Radcliff of Weston appeared Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate John Kaull in Clarksburg.
U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld says she pleaded guilty to embezzlement and one count of illegally structuring funds between July 2011 and November 2012.
Investigators say Radcliff cut cashier's checks various accounts then forged depositor's names and cashed them.
Ihlenfeld says the victims were older, between 56 and 90 years old. Only one was under 64.
Ihlenfeld says Radcliff made sure the checks were for less than $10,000 and therefore not subject to a reporting mechanism. She also cashed them on different days.
Radcliff faces up to 40 years and a $1.5 million fine when sentenced.
