Teresa Downing is accused of making false entries in the books at Citizens State Bank in Postville to the benefit of bank customer Agriprocessors. Downing, a former employee of the bank, also allegedly devised a plan to defreaud the bank by embezzling money from the bank’s account. If convicted she faces the maximum of 30 years in prison and one million dollars in fines. Also, a woman from India has pleaded guilty to Social Security violations. 55-year-old Teresas Partridge pled guilty to a charge of using a false identification document to get a job.
