A woman has recently been indicted in the Texarkana Division of the Eastern District of Texas, for bank fraud charges of more than $100,000 and is scheduled to appear in court next month.
Beginning around May 2012 to July 2014, Ashley Meree Wilde allegedly issued and cashed checks drawn on the Red River Credit Union and Regions Bank accounts belonging to her employer, the Howard Mowery Law Firm.
According to the five-count indictment given May 20, Wilde allegedly committed such crimes by forging Mowery’s signature or representing that she was authorized to issue such checks.
Upon conviction, Wilde must forfeit a money judgment in the amount of $110,000, which represents the proceeds of her alleged crime.
Wilde faces a penalty of imprisonment of up to 30 years in prison or a fine of $1 million or both.
Wilde is scheduled to appear before U.S Magistrate Judge Caroline Craven on June 8 in Texarkana’s downtown federal building.
