A former loan officer at The Bank of Romney will spend a year in federal prison for bank fraud.

Kimberly Haslacker had pleaded guilty to bank fraud in May. The 39-year-old Romney resident was sentenced on Monday in U.S District Court in Martinsburg.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld II says Haslacker used her position at the bank to submit fake loan applications to obtain nearly $170,000. Haslacker submitted the applications in her name and the names of friends and relatives.
