Five banned from FCU work in newest NCUA prohibition orders
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (5/1/14)--Former Pampa (Texas) Teachers FCU loan officer Erin Trevathan is one of five individuals prohibited from future financial institution work under National Credit Union Administration prohibition orders released Wednesday.

Trevathan, who pleaded guilty to fraud charges, was the only loan officer at the $11 million-asset credit union between mid-2008 and 2010, and used funds she allegedly stole for personal use, The Associated Press reported in 2013.  The Pampa News said that year that Trevathan allegedly funded false loans with funds from other credit union member accounts and made false entries into financial statements and credit union records to cover her tracks.

She has been ordered to pay $442,973.91 in restitution. Trevathan will also serve three years of prison and five years of supervised release.

Also subject to NCUA prohibition orders are:
  • Jayme Cather, aka Jayme Suiter, a former employee of Pittsburgh Central FCU, Sewickley, Pa., with $42 million in assets. Cather entered into an accelerated rehabilitative disposition program in connection with charges of unlawful use of a computer, theft and receiving stolen property. Cather was also required to complete 200 hours of community service and ordered to pay $16,508.02 in restitution;
     
  • Aaron Kyle Harris, a former employee of Mainstreet CU, Lenexa, Kan., with $338 million in assets, who pleaded no contest to charges of unlawful acts concerning computers and theft. Harris was sentenced to eight months in prison, one year of supervised release and 18 months of probation;
     
  • Susanne Jenness, a former employee of $4.8 million-asset United Neighbors FCU, Watertown, N.Y., who pleaded guilty to a charge of grand larceny. Jenness was sentenced to a five-year probation and ordered to pay $22,215.70 in restitution; and
     
  • Kelly Osborne, a former employee of Charlotte Fire Department CU, Charlotte, N.C., with $48 million in assets. Osborne pleaded guilty to embezzlement charges and was sentenced to six months in prison, three years of supervised release and ordered to pay $97,953.05 in restitution.
The NCUA reminds that violation of a prohibition order is a felony offense punishable by imprisonment and a fine of up to $1 million.
