Bank fraud draws 15 months

A Spencerville woman who previously admitted to eight counts of bank fraud was sentenced to 15 months in prison last week.

Kandi Biggins, a former Tower Bank employee, had been accused of taking tens of thousands of dollars from the branch where she worked to keep her family in their foreclosed home.

Thursday, a federal judge in South Bend sentenced her to 15 months in prison and two years’ supervised release when she gets out.

Biggins was also ordered to pay $182,466 in restitution, according to court records.

Biggins admitted in court documents to using false statements and false pretenses in obtaining cashiers’ checks from the bank.
