TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The former manager of a bank branch in Manhattan faces a little more than two years in prison for embezzling about $277,000 from the bank.

The office of the federal prosecutor for Kansas says Melissa Vinsonhaler was sentenced Wednesday to 27 months in federal prison for embezzlement. She also has to repay $277,000.

The prosecutor’s office says Vinsonhaler pleaded guilty earlier to one count of embezzlement from a bank. Prosecutors say Vinsonhaler admitted embezzling the money from Kansas State Bank, where she was a branch manager, and making false ledger entries to cover up the crime.
