Former Bank Manager Sentenced for Fraud

On July 30, 2014, in Springfield, Missouri, Jennifer A. Gunter, of Republic, was sentenced to 46 months in prison and ordered to pay $547,897 in restitution. Gunter pleaded guilty on Sept. 12, 2013, to bank fraud and filing a false tax return. According to court documents, Gunter was a bank branch manager and from December 2006 until November 2012, she repeatedly accessed the bank accounts of four elderly bank customers and embezzled a total of $316,598 from those accounts. Gunter submitted transaction tickets, withdrawal slips, and cashier’s checks on which she forged the names of the account holders in order to withdraw money from the bank accounts. She used the money for personal matters and expenses. Gunter set the customer accounts to “do not mail” status in order to keep the customers from receiving their bank statements and detecting the theft from their bank accounts. In addition, Gunter failed to report this embezzled income on her individual income tax returns. Gunter did not report over $257,000 of additional income for 2009 through 2012, resulting in additional tax due and owing of $50,140. (Source:
