TYLER, Texas (AP) -

A former bank teller in East Texas has been convicted of embezzling nearly $1.4 million and faces up to 30 years in prison.

A federal judge in Tyler on Wednesday formally accepted the theft-related guilty plea from Kerri Monroe Jones.

Court documents show Jones has acknowledged stealing from Capital One Bank in Longview, where she had worked from 2000 until September 2013.

Investigators say Jones, who was arrested April 17 and awaits sentencing, hid the unauthorized cash entries by adjusting bank documents.

Jones could also be fined up to $1 million.
