A Washtenaw County woman has been charged with embezzling $704,000 from Key Bank over a 10-year period.
The charge against Dianna DeLawter of Manchester was filed Tuesday in federal court in Detroit. It was filed as a criminal "information," which is negotiated between parties.
Defense attorney David Goldstein says a guilty plea is likely.
The 49-year-old DeLawter worked at a Key Bank branch in Chelsea. The court document says the embezzlement began in May 2001. Bank spokesman Dan Davis says it was uncovered through internal monitoring.
Asked why the money was taken, Goldstein would only say that DeLawter had problems.
