GULFPORT — A federal judge has sentenced Ashley Ann Keel to 18 months in prison and ordered her to make restitution of the $80,980 she stole when she was vault teller for a Hancock Bank branch in Biloxi.
The Sun Herald reports U.S. District Judge Louis Guirola Jr. sentenced Keel yesterday and also ordered drug treatment and three years of probation for her.
The single mother admitted an oxycodone addiction clouded her judgment.
The 29-year-old Pass Christian woman pleaded guilty in November to stealing the money over four months starting in April 2012.
