GULFPORT — A federal judge has sentenced 45-year-old Lisa Brooks of Gulfport for defrauding her former employer, Hancock Bank, of nearly over $144,000.
Chief U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. sentenced Brooks yesterday to serve two years in prison, with three years of supervised release, and to pay restitution. He also ordered her to perform 100 hours of community service in her first year of probation.
The Sun Herald reports Brooks remains free on an appearance bond. She must report to prison within 72 hours of being notified where she will serve her time.
The FBI investigation showed Brooks stole the money between October 2006 and October 2008 while she was an adjustor in the bank’s recoveries department in Long Beach.
