Ex-Altoona City Clerk Gets 6 Months Prison in Fraud Scheme

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A U.S. attorney's office says a former Altoona city clerk has been sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to one count of bank fraud.  U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Tuesday that Chrystal Scherbarth also was ordered to pay more than $47,000 in restitution to the city of Altoona.  Grissom's office said Scherbarth used her access to the city's accounts at First Neodesha Bank in the scheme. She fraudulently increased her hourly and overtime pay, and credited herself with unearned vacation and sick leave.  Authorities say the crime cost Altoona more than $47,800.
