A former retail operations officer for the United Prairie Bank in Mankato has been charged in federal court in Minnesota with embezzling about $108,000 from customer accounts.

Carolyn Faye Hampel, 65, of Jackson, was charged Friday with one count of embezzlement by a bank officer. According to charges filed by the U.S. Attorney's Office, Hampel embezzled the funds from January of 2005 through August of 2011 and used the money for personal expenses, including paying down a loan balance for a family member.

If convicted, Hampel faces a potential maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.
