RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A 27-year-old Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for conspiring to commit bank fraud.

Jeannetta Matthews of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, was sentenced in federal court in Richmond on Monday. Matthews was also ordered to pay about $457,000 in restitution to Wells Fargo Bank. Matthews pleaded guilty in July.

According to court documents, Matthews was a customer sales and service representative at a Wells Fargo bank branch in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. In October 2012, she agreed to use her position at the bank to access and sell customer account and personal identifying information for a fee of about $7,000. Matthews accessed the accounts of and sold information related to more than 20 Wells Fargo customers that included account numbers, social security numbers, and dates of birth.
