LINCOLN (AP) — A 35-year-old Seward woman has changed her plea to guilty in a federal embezzlement case.
Crystal Lankford made the plea change Wednesday. Prosecutors say she stole nearly $662,000 while working for H.B.E. Credit Union from 2006 to 2011.
Her sentencing is scheduled for January. Lankford faces up to 30 years in prison, but as part of plea deal she made with prosecutors she won't have to face more embezzlement or bank fraud charges.
