St. Louis Community Credit Union Employee Indicted for Embezzlement

ST. LOUIS, MO—Jamie Askew was indicted for allegedly embezzling approximately $104,755 from the St. Louis Community Credit Union between July 2009 and May 2012.

Jamie Askew, Troy, Illinois, was indicted by a federal grand jury on one felony count of embezzlement from a credit union.

If convicted, this charge carries a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison. In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. First Assistant United States Attorney Michael W. Reap is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

As is always the case, charges set forth in an indictment are merely accusations and do not constitute proof of guilt. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty
