BATESVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) – A woman accused of swapping fake money for the real thing while working for a bank has been ordered to serve probation and pay restitution.
Crystal Ball, 44, of Batesville, was arrested last year on indictments accusing her of swapping $15,000 in counterfeit cash for the real currency.
She was also indicted for taking nearly $4,000 from a customer’s account at the BancorpSouth branch in Batesville.
Under a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped the embezzlement charge and allowed her to plead guilty to the counterfeiting charge.
Ball was ordered to serve five years’ probation and repay more than $51,000 in restitution.
