Former Bank Employee Priscilla Delarosa Convicted on Embezzlement, Other Charges

Lubbock County Active Jail Roster

A former bank employee has been convicted on embezzlement and false statement charges.

32-year-old Priscilla Delarosa of Lamesa was convicted Tuesday on all three counts of an indictment charging one count of misapplication of bank funds by a bank employee, one count of fraud in connection with an access device, and one count of making false statements.

According to evidence presented in the trial, Delarosa embezzled more than $170,000 from Compass Bank in Big Spring during her employment there. Delarosa also used a customer’s debit card to commit further fraud.

During questioning by a Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service, Delarosa made false statements about making transactions on a customer’s account at the bank.

The maximum penalties for each count are 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for misapplication of bank funds, 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for fraud in connection with an access device, and 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for false statements.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda R. Burch and Deputy Criminal Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Denise Williams of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
