TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A former vice president of the First National Bank of Harveyville has been ordered to pay $107,175 in restitution after pleading guilty to embezzling from the bank.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said Debra Kay Converse, 60, pleaded guilty Monday.

In April 2019, the president of First National contacted the Wabaunsee County Sheriff because he believed Converse was embezzling from the bank.

The bank’s investigation focused on what Converse claimed were glitches in software. When Converse resigned in March, the bank began an audit.

McAllister said the bank also learned that Converse, while serving as City Treasurer for Harveyville cashed $5,700 in checks that she had written to First National Bank for processing residents’ utility payments, rather than crediting the revenue to the bank.
