Hayden woman sentenced to prison for embezzlement


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A Hayden woman has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for embezzling money from the bank where she worked.

Federal authorities say 51-year-old Frances Duckworth was sentenced Wednesday to serve 27 months in prison. Duckworth pleaded guilty in March to embezzling money from the Warrior bank where she worked between November 2009 and August 2012.

Authorities say Duckworth must also forfeit $202,994 to the government as proceeds of illegal activity and must pay the same amount in restitution to the bank. She will also be on supervised release for five years after her release.
