Ex-Pa. bank manager gets house arrest in thef

READING, Pa. (AP) — A former Pennsylvania bank manager sentenced to six months of house arrest has vowed to work hard to pay back nearly $200,000 he pleaded guilty to stealing from an incarcerated customer.

The Reading Eagle (http://bit.ly/13H8MDv ) said 39-year-old David Parsons of Shillington made the vow Monday to Berks County Judge Stephen Lieberman before sentencing.

Lieberman said the defendant had cooperated, pleaded guilty to theft and pledged to make full restitution, and house arrest was in the best interest of taxpayers.

Authorities said the former Metro Bank manager created debit cards in the name of a man who had inherited money while incarcerated in York County Prison and later Muskingum County Jail in Ohio, from which he was released in December 2011.

Parsons apologized to the bank and his family.
