Homer man gets 38 months for stealing from employer


SHREVEPORT, Louisiana — Federal prosecutors say a Homer man has been sentenced to 38 months in prison for stealing more than $59,000 from his Claiborne Parish employer's bank account.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says 47-year-old John Bob Jr. was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote for one count each of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.

He also was ordered to pay $58,248 in restitution and serve five years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term.

Finley's office, in a news release, said Bob used his employer's debit card and personal identification number to make about 200 withdrawals between May 2012 and July 2013 from banks across northwest Louisiana.
