Former Credit Union Teller Faces 30 years For Embezzlement

The former head teller of a Lynchburg based Credit Union will be sentenced in March. 58 year old, Teresa W Humphries, of Madison Heights, waived her right to be indicted and pled guilty earlier this month to one-count information charging her with embezzlement. Information is often filed when a suspect cooperates with prosecutors and intends to plead guilty. Chartered in 1936, Lynrocten served the employees of Rock-Tenn Company; the company was liquidated in May 2013 amid rumors of the criminal probe that involved Humphries and two other former Lynrocten staff members: According sources, Humphries stole between $3,000 and $4,000 every month between 2007 and 2013. At sentencing, on March 28, Humphries faces a maximum possible penalty of up to 30 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $1 million. The investigation of the case was conducted by the FBI, the U.S Secret Service, and the Lynchburg Police Department.
