Former Kansas Banker Pleads Guilty to Fraud

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A former loan officer for a Great Bend bank will be sentenced June 8 after pleading guilty to bank fraud.  U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced Monday that 56-year-old Brian W. Harrison, of Great Bend, admitted in his plea that he committed fraud while working as a loan officer at Farmer's Bank and Trust in Great Bend from 2004 to 2012.  Prosecutors say he made or caused to be made false statements to hide that various loans he made were performing poorly. He also falsified credit and loan applications, promissory notes and security agreements for a customer without permission.  Attorneys have agreed to recommend a sentence of six months in prison, followed by six months home detention. He also will be ordered to pay more than $124,000 in restitution.
