Former bank teller sentenced for identity theft

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Kelly Taplin, 31, of Byram, has been sentenced to 24 months in federal prison followed by one year of supervised release for aggravated identity theft. Taplin was also ordered to pay $19,132.20 in restitution to Trustmark National Bank.

During her guilty plea hearing on April 8, Taplin admitted that, in 2011, while working as a teller at Trustmark National Bank in Byram, she withdrew money from a Trustmark customer's account and opened loans in the name and identity of that customer for her own personal use.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst.
