It's a good thing the banks keep such good tabs on the cash. I mean, it's not like she blasted the vault open at night. For the love of God, she basically signed it out and no one knew for 5 months.

Not really unbelievable.....Sometimes tellers make mistakes and their drawer doesn't balance. They wouldn't start investigating her until her drawer didn't balance two or three times in a short period, something that would indicate that perhaps there's an issue. Additionally, banks have their own security people who would do an in house investigation before contacting the police.

Seriously-- 24 months probation is all she gets? Oh that's right-- claim addiction and you get off virtually scott free- how long does she have to repay the bank? Will she sell her house to pay back and do the right thing or make payments every month for however long it takes...why do people think it's ok to steal as long as they have a reason?

Maybe the "Pro Casino" group will help her pay off her debt. When the casino opens, she won't be the only one that goes too far. Gambling is addictive to some people.

On the tellers make mistakes -- obviously the banks are making it easy for the employees to become thieves by allowing them not to account for their mistakes! Have it come out of their pockets and this will soon stop!

That said .. Embezzlement seems to be the crime of choice. Someone comes into your house and steals from you, and there is no way they would get just Probation! I realize that she has to make restitution, but I am really Sick of Embezzlers getting off like this.

She is a thief! and at its highest level, in my book!

I'm thinking her boss, the Branch Manager, should be fired, too. Seriously, people. Do you know how hard it is to steal $19K from a bank??? You would need to be short a LOT and that wouldn't raise someone's suspicion?? Banks generally will spot check a teller's drawer for this very reason...

And what in the world does a casino have anything to do with this??

I knew this person when I used to work in banking. She was very professional and was a valued employee. When I first started reading the article, I felt something had to be terribly wrong. I hope Sharon is able to get help and eventually heal from all that is happened. Sharon, you will come through this a better person.

yes, i understand people make mistakes and drawers are short at times. if someones drawer was short all the time, there was a problem and the manager should have know about it. I dont understand how she was able to get away with more than $19,000. either someone else was looking the other way or the branch manager doesnt know how to do their job.

Embezzelment is a common crime with gambling addiction. Gambling addiction rises with the proximity of a casino. Let's not invite more of it.

How do you know someone else wasn't fired? If someone was fired for failing to notice this problem, it wouldn't be announced in the paper...
