A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on a charge of embezzlement, United States Attorney David J Hickton announced today. The one-count indictment named Danielle M Keane, 37, as the sole defendant. According to the indictment presented to the court, from on or about April 30, 2007, to on or about August 1, 2010, Danielle M Keane, an employee for the Bank of New York Mellon, embezzled approximately $452,037.06. If convicted, the law provides for a maximum total sentence of not more than 30 years in prison, a fine of $1,000,000, or both.

Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case. An indictment or information is an accusation.
