United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced today that United States District Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill sentenced Donice Maxine Medina, 53, of Parlier, today to 33 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release for theft and embezzlement of bank funds. Medina was also ordered to pay $1,890,801 in restitution to the Bank of the West, her former employer. She pleaded guilty on January 29, 2010.

This case is the product of an extensive investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and was brought to the attention of the FBI by Bank of the West investigators who discovered the embezzlement. Assistant United States Attorney Kirk E. Sherriff prosecuted the case.
According to Medina’s guilty plea, from January 2006 through August 28, 2009, she used her position as a Customer Service Manager of the Bank of the West branch in Parlier to embezzle $1,890,801 of the bank’s funds.
