Guam - A former bank employee appeared in District Court today accused of embezzling money from customers bank accounts to use the money for personal use. Christine Janelle Lizama is charged in a federal complaint with embezzlement.
She was a bank teller who allegedly took an estimated $7,500 in unauthorized withdrawals from nine customers accounts. She was terminated from the financial institution.
Today in court the federal Public Defender's Office was appointed to represent her and a preliminary examination is set for November 13.
