(SitNews) Anchorage, Alaska - A 23 year old Anchorage woman was arrested Monday and arraigned Tuesday in federal court on a criminal complaint charging her with bank embezzlement. The complaint alleges that she had embezzled over $100,000 from her former employer, Credit Union 1.

U.S. Attorney Karen L. Loeffler announced the arrest of Shanice Mano. According to the complaint, Mano was a teller at Credit Union 1 when she accessed customer accounts without authority and transferred money to accounts that she had control over and from which she was able to make withdrawals.

The law provides for a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison and a fine of $1 million or both. Under federal sentencing statutes, the actual sentence imposed will be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The FBI conducted the investigation leading to the arrest.

A complaint is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
