Former credit union employee indicted for embezzling funds

Amarillo, TX - A former employee of the Pantex Federal Credit Union in Borger faces 30 years in prison for allegedly embezzling thousands of dollars.

A federal grand jury indicted 56-year-old Dorothy Barnes last week on one count of embezzlement from a federally-insured credit union, and today she pleaded not guilty.

The indictment alleges Barnes embezzled $826,000 from the Pantex Federal Credit Union between September 1996 and December 2010.

A trial date will be set for Barnes at a later time.

If convicted, she could face a fine up to $1,000,000 in addition to time in federal prison.
