ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque woman has pleaded guilty to charges of embezzlement by a bank employee and embezzlement from tribal organizations.

Prosecutors say 38-year-old Angela Giddings entered her plea Friday.

Under terms of her plea agreement, prosecutors say Giddings will serve a two-year sentence in federal prison plus a term of supervised release yet to be determined.

In December 2014, Giddings pleaded not guilty to charges of multiple charges of embezzlement and identity theft.

Prosecutors say Giddings committed the offenses in New Mexico’s Bernalillo County between February 2013 and July 2014.

At the time, Giddings was employed as a customer services manager for Bank of the West.

Prosecutors say she withdrew and transferred funds ranging from $15,000 to $60,000 from the accounts of customers without authorization and for her own use.
