Debra Antonitis, the former Wrentham Co-Operative Bank employee charged with bank fraud, pleaded guilty on Monday as part of an agreement with the U.S. Attorney.
Last November it was announced by the United States Attorney and FBI that Antonitis had been arrested and charged with making 143 fraudulent transfers of funds through the records system of the Wrentham bank in order to take $112,385. In the announcement released by the U.S. Attorney's office it said, Antonitis allegedly created fictitious withdrawals from customers' accounts and transferred the funds to herself in cash or in deposits to her own accounts.
As part of the plea agreement, the U.S. Attorney's office recommends a sentence of one year probation, with the first six months being home detention, a $3,000 fine, and restitution of $112,385.
Antonitis is scheduled to be sentenced on April 10th at 2 pm in front of U.S. Federal Judge William Young.
In regards to Antonitis' guilty plea, Wrentham Co-operative Bank president Jeff Liber said, "We are glad that she has accepted responsibility for her actions and on behalf of the bank and our customers, we look forward to seeing justice served."
