Former credit union employee on Money Laundering

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KSNT) — On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said a former credit union employee pleaded guilty to embezzling more than $34,000.

Susan Wooten-Robb, 25, pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud.

In her plea, she admitted the crime occurred while she worked at Community America Credit Union at 5601 W. 95th in Overland Park.

In Feb. 2014, two account holders complained about unauthorized debits from their accounts. Investigation revealed Wooten-Robb had made unauthorized debits totaling $34,035. In one instance, she attempted to cover up an unauthorized debit by filing a false currency transaction report claiming the account holders took out the money to assist a family member with paying tuition.

Sentencing will be set for a later date. She faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in federal prison and a fine up to $1 million.

Grissom commended the U.S. Secret Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jabari Wamble for their work on the case.
