JUNEAU — A former employee of Alaska Pacific Bank has been sentenced for embezzlement.
Thirty-six-year-old Adam Jay Hendren of Juneau received five years probation for theft, embezzlement and misapplication of funds by a bank officer.
Hendren stole airline miles from the company's corporate mileage account.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Alaska says Hendren stole more than $8,500 in airline miles to pay for travel to and from the Lower 48 for himself and his family.
The miles were supposed to be used for the bank’s mortgage loan customers.
U. S. District Court Judge John W. Sedwick also sentenced Hendren to 250 hours of community service.
