Kan. woman sentenced to probation for embezzlement

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former employee of a northeast Kansas credit union has been sentenced in federal court to two years of probation for embezzling $85,000 from the company.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Deborah Bomia, of Enterprise, must also pay $85,000 in restitution to Enterprise Credit Union under the sentence she received Tuesday.

Bomia pleaded guilty last July to the crime, which occurred between April 2005 and August 2011. She admitted kiting checks between accounts in her name at the credit union to create fictitious balances.

Prosecutors said Bomia would record a large deposit in the credit union's general ledger near the end of the month but not make the deposit for several weeks, when another large check would be drafted out of her credit union checking account.
