More charges levied against former bank teller in embezzlement case
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained even more indictments against a former Clarksville bank teller who was initially arrested in October for multiple charges.
Last October, 30-year-old Kristy Hodges of Cunningham, Tennessee, was charged with one count of theft over $60,000, two counts of false entries over $1,000 and seven counts of false booking entries over $10,000.
On Tuesday, Hodges was indicted on an additional 43 counts of false bookkeeping and one count of theft over $60,000.
Steven Hodges, Kristy's brother, told Nashville's News 2 that she worked at the Capital bank branch on Jefferson Avenue until shortly after her father died in August 2012.
In September, the 19th Judicial District Attorney General requested the TBI launch an investigation into allegations of embezzlement by Hodges.
She is accused of stealing approximately $64,000 between 2008 and 2012.
Steven Hodges also said that the family doesn't believe Kristy took the money.
He said he doesn't expect his sister to be convicted.
