Former bank manager pleads guilty to embezzlement

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - U.S. Attorney Jim Letten says a former manager of a Whitney Bank branch in Metairie has admitted stealing more than $56,000 from the bank.

He says 50-year-old Karen Sork pleaded guilty Wednesday to bank theft, and could get up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines, and restitution.

Court documents say she was a banking officer and manager at the branch from December 2008 to August 2009, and sometimes acted as a teller. It says that when she did, she would regularly take cash from her "cash drawer," put it into her personal accounts, and fill in a false amount of money on the balance sheet at the end of her shift.

According to Letten, Sork stole nearly $56,300.

Her sentencing was scheduled for Oct. 10.
