ROCHESTER, N.H. — A former Profile Bank employee was sentenced to a year in jail on Tuesday after pleading guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from a customer’s account.

Kristin Fallon, 34, of Berwick, Maine, stole more than $58,000 from an elderly customer’s account while working at Profile Bank as a teller. She made unauthorized cash withdrawals from the account between February 2010 and October 2011.

As part of a plea agreement, Fallon on Tuesday pleaded guilty to felony theft by unauthorized taking, and was ordered to serve 12 months in the Strafford County House of Corrections.

Fallon was also ordered to pay $25,000 to Profile Bank in Rochester, and $33,009 to an insurance company.

Fallon, who has worked for Rochester’s Profile Bank for more than four years, was arrested in April 2012 after a five-month mutual investigation conducted by the bank and the Rochester police.

Her employment with the bank ended after the thefts were discovered.
