A 28-year-old Stevens Point woman convicted of stealing money from the US Bank where she formerly worked as a teller is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
Investigators says Kristin Deadwyler would create false deposits into her account by writing checks to herself from an account which had no money in it. Police say she would then use that money to pay bills and withdrawal crash from ATMs.
According to the criminal complaint, Deadwyler deposited $4,400 into her account from May 30 to June 3. A bank manager says that money did not exist, except on paper.
The bank estimated they were out about $1,300.
During an interview with police they say Deadwyler said she knew it was stealing, but was desperate to pay her bills.
Deadwyler pleaded guilty to two counts of theft from a financial institution during a plea deal with prosecutors Tuesday. As result four other similar charges were dismissed, but will be considered during a September 30 sentencing hearing.
