Three ex-CU employees prohibited by NCUA
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (11/15/11)--The National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on Monday blocked former San Antonio FCU employees Melissa Barajas and Donna Gonzalez, and former Southern CU employee Cheryl Watson, from participating in the affairs of any federally insured financial institution.

Barajas and Gonzalez, who worked for the San Antonio-based credit union, were both convicted on embezzlement charges. Barajas will serve 12 months and one day in prison and five years of supervised probation, and will pay $56,423 in restitution. Gonzalez has been sentenced to 15 months in prison and three years of supervised probation, and will pay $56,826.36 in restitution, the NCUA added.

Watson, who served as a bookkeeper with Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Southern CU, consented to an NCUA prohibition order, without admitting or denying fault.

Violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million. Use the resource link to access all NCUA prohibition orders.
