From bank teller gets prison time in bank fraud

GULFPORT, Miss. —

Former Picayune bank teller Vonetta Jordan has been sentenced to 17 months in prison for bank fraud and ordered to repay over $117,000.
 
On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden also ordered two years of probation after her release from prison.
 
The 37-year-old Jordan, of Poplarville, was the head teller at Union Planters Bank before Regions Bank acquired it.
 
The Sun Herald reports the money was embezzled between April 2004 and February 2005. She pleaded guilty in February.
 
Debra Mitchell, a teller who worked under Jordan, was sentenced in March for helping steal the money.
