Ex-PlainsCapital teller gets 8 months in federal prison for embezzlement plea in Texas

Ex-teller gets 8 months for embezzlement plea

A former PlainsCapital Bank teller was sentenced on Thursday, June 6, to eight months in federal prison for stealing from her former employer.

U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings also ordered Riley Paige Trotter, 24, to pay $36,233 in restitution. After she finishes her prison term, she will spend five years on supervised release.

Trotter, a part-time teller supervisor at the bank, pleaded guilty in February to the charge. According to court documents, the theft was discovered in an internal audit when both her cash drawer and the vault came up short.

Trotter told bank officials she’d begun taking money from the bank in May 2010.
