Pittsfield woman sentenced to 3 years in prison

A Pittsfield woman has been sentenced to three years in jail for stealing $200,000 from the credit union where she worked.

Janine Shepard was sentenced Wednesday in Berkshire Superior Court after pleading guilty to charges of larceny over $250 and making false entries into corporate books.

Prosecutors say the 48-year-old Shepard stole the money between Jan. 1, 2010 and Feb. 18, 2012 while she was head teller at a Greylock Federal Credit Union branch.

Credit union officials tell The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/14L08Fu ) that Shepard falsified documents at Greylock while she taking money from available cash, then lied to another employee who was responsible for checking her work.
