Former Compass Bank Employee Priscilla Delarosa Sentenced for Embezzlement, Other Charges

Lubbock County Active Jail Roster

A former bank employee has been sentenced, following her conviction on embezzlement and false statement charges.

32-year-old Priscilla Delarosa of Lamesa has been sentenced to 46 months in federal prison, following her conviction last March.

Delarosa was convicted on 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.

Evidence was presented at trial that Delarosa embezzled more than $170,000 while she worked at Compass Bank in Big Spring, Texas.

Delarosa also used a customer’s debit card to defraud the bank and receive money, goods, services, and other things of value. She also made false statements to a member of the U.S. Secret Service, when she denied making transactions on a customer’s account at the bank.

U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings handed down the sentence Friday morning, and also ordered that Delarosa pay more than $174,000 in restitution to Compass bank.

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.
