BANGOR, Maine — A former bank employee has pleaded guilty in federal court to stealing about $750,000.

Christina Torres-York of Warren pleaded guilty Tuesday to embezzlement and misapplication of money.

Authorities say she took the money in unauthorized withdrawals from customers’ lines of credit over a two-year period ending in October 2009 while working as a loan officer at the Camden National Bank branch in Waldoboro.

WABI-TV says Torres-York faces up to 30 years in prison, but under an agreement with federal prosecutors can appeal her sentence if it’s longer than 33 months. She is scheduled to be sentenced in April.
