BARBOURSVILLE, W.Va. -- A December trial is set for a former First State Bank executive accused of bank fraud and misappropriation of bank funds.
A federal indictment says 33-year-old Jackie Cantley forged the signature of a cousin who was in prison on loan-related documents, along with the signatures of others. He also is accused of approving loans to borrowers who didn't qualify.
The indictment says Cantley formerly was a vice president of First State Bank's branch in Barboursville. He resigned from the bank after it began an internal review of loans he'd authorized.
The Herald-Dispatch reports that Cantley's trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 17.
