Ex-bank employee pleads guilty to stealing
Published: September 15,2010
HATTIESBURG — A former Hancock Bank employee has been indicted on federal charge of bank fraud.
Pamela Swilley was indicted in January, though all the details in the original indictment remain under seal.
In the redacted indictment, Swilley is accused of stealing from the bank between July 31, 2006, and June 24, 2009. She has pleaded guilty.
Swilley was a financial services associate. She is free on a $25,000 unsecured bond. Her sentencing, initially set for July 15 in federal court in Hattiesburg, was postponed after the government filed a motion saying Hancock Bank officials have since discovered what appears to be “additional fraud” involving Swilley.
The Sun Herald reports Swilley and her attorney, John Weber III, could not be reached for comment.
