An Illinois woman with ties to Osage Beach is facing charges of bank fraud. Dawn Robinson Reports.
Prosecutors say 56 year old Mary Susan Becker of Jerseyville embezzled four point four million dollars over the course of eight years as an executive at Jersey State Bank. She had worked her way up through the ranks, starting as an assistant cashier in 1976. Now, she’s indicted for bank fraud in federal court. Authorities are accusing Becker of inflating expenses and transferring money from the bank’s account into her own, electronically. They’re asking for forfeiture of some of her assets, which include two condominium units in Osage Beach and a powerboat. I’m Daune Robinson.
