NCUA bans 7 from future work in FIs
The NCUA in September issued five prohibition notices and two prohibition orders, which prohibit individuals previously associated with credit unions from any future participation in the affairs of a federally insured financial institution.
Violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million. The names and details from last month's prohibitions include the following:
- Richard Fortney, a former institution-affiliated party of Mid East Tennessee Community Credit Union in Decatur, Tenn., agreed and consented to the issuance of prohibition order and agreed to comply with all of its terms to settle and resolve the NCUA Board’s claims against him.
- Connie Marie Kent, a former employee of Topeka Post Office Credit Union (now 1st Kansas Credit Union) in Topeka, Kan., pleaded guilty to the charge of embezzlement.
- Jamelah Y. Martinez, a former employee of Suncoast Credit Union in Tampa, Fla., pleaded guilty to the charge of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
- Jenifer M. Nelson, a former employee of Baker’s Federal Credit Union in Omaha, Neb., pleaded guilty to the charge of attempted theft.
- Teresa Ann Perkins, a former employee of Community United Federal Credit Union in Waycross, Ga., pleaded guilty to the charge of theft, embezzlement or misapplication of funds.
- Jasmine Marie Santos, a former institution-affiliated party of People’s Alliance Federal Credit Union in Hauppauge, N.Y., agreed and consented to the issuance of a prohibition order and agreed to comply with all of its terms to settle and resolve the NCUA Board’s claims against her.
- Devin S. Williams, a former employee of Suncoast Credit Union in Tampa, Fla., pleaded guilty to the charge of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.
NCUA enforcement orders are available via a searchable database online. Enforcement actions of federal banking agencies against other institutions or their affiliated parties may also be viewed via the administrative orders webpage.
