JACKSON — A federal judge has sentenced a woman to one year in prison on a bank fraud charge.
Court records say Nicole Whitten was a financial services representative for Trustmark National Bank in Jackson. She was charged in June with using a customer’s information to take out a loan in his name and had the money put in her bank account.
U.S. District Judge William H. Barbour in Jackson sentenced her, and ordered her to pay $188,617 in restitution.
Court records say she forged the customer’s name as part of the scheme.
She pleaded guilty in June.
