A former Bank of the West employee who admitted stealing thousands from elderly customers has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Amy N. Fisher, 43, of Papillion also received five years of supervised release, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for Nebraska. She pleaded guilty to embezzlement in June.

According to the release, an FBI investigation found that Fisher, a financial services officer with the bank's Bellevue branch, had made unauthorized withdrawals from customer accounts.

The bank confronted Fisher in March 2014, and she admitted embezzling.

Judge Laurie Smith Camp found that Fisher had engaged in 55 such transactions affecting 17 customers, all of whom were between 82 and 97 years old. Camp ordered her to pay $158,942 restitution to the bank, which has reimbursed the affected accounts.
