Lynchburg, VA - A former Lynchburg banker has been sentenced for fraud.
Dala Freitas will spend six months in home confinement and five years on probation for "cooking" the books to benefit family members.
A judge has ordered her to pay nearly $101,000 in restitution.
Freitas was the branch manager at Blue Ridge Federal Credit Union, and previously pleaded guilty to making false entries there. Freitas posted checks to the credit union account of Clean Rite Sewer and Drain Cleaning but did not process them.
Freitas was moonlighting as a bookkeeper for the business, which was owned by her brother-in-law and nephew. They tapped the funds to meet payroll.
