WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A former Kansas banker at the Plains State Bank has been sentenced to probation for not reporting suspicious activity in a customer’s bank account.

The Wichita Eagle ( ) reports 53-year-old James Friend, who was the president of the bank, received one year of probation Monday. He had pleaded guilty to one count of failing to file a Suspicious Activity Report of George and Agatha Enns, who were indicted on charges on money laundering proceeds from drug trafficking. The Enns pleaded guilty to money laundering conspiracy.

The bank became aware of the suspicious activity through software that regularly flagged the Enns’ account.
