Former bank teller sentenced to 5 year diversion in fraud case

 A former Capital Bank head teller was sentenced to a five-year judicial diversion for stealing more than $60,000 from a local bank.

Kristy Hodges, 31, of Cunningham, Tenn., was charged with theft and 43 counts of false bookkeeping.

In September of 2012, the 19th Judicial District Attorney General requested TBI investigate allegations of embezzlement by Hodges, who was head teller at Capital Bank located at 25 Jefferson St. Hodges allegedly stole approximately $64,000 between 2008 and 2012, according to a previous report.

On Jan. 3, Hodges entered an open guilty plea to theft over $10,000 in Judge John H. Gasaway’s court. The 43 charges of false bookkeeping were dismissed in settlement.

Thursday, she was sentenced to a five-year judicial diversion to be served on state probation. She must also pay restitution to the bank in a civil agreement, according to court records.

She must also disclose her conviction if she seeks employment at any type of financial institution.
