Oklahoma City Man Sentenced to 41 Months in Prison and Ordered to Pay Over $103,000 in Restitution for Banking Crime
|U.S. Attorney’s Office October 05, 2011|
OKLAHOMA CITY—RANDY DAVID MOORAD, 33, of Oklahoma City, was sentenced today to 41 months in prison for making a false statement to Bank of Oklahoma, announced Sanford C. Coats, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma. Moorad was also ordered to pay $103,842.33 to the bank in restitution. After his prison term, he will serve five years on supervised release.
On July 7, 2010, a federal grand jury indicted Moorad for three crimes committed in the fall of 2008: using a false identity to cash a check on another person’s business account, defrauding Bank of Oklahoma by convincing a teller to transfer thousands of dollars out of a relative’s account without authorization, and conspiring with the teller to embezzle money by forging temporary checks. Moorad pled guilty to the first count on January 5, 2011.
Today, United States District Judge David L. Russell sentenced Moorad to 41 months in prison. The sentence was based in part on Moorad’s criminal history, which includes convictions for false impersonation in Oklahoma County; obtaining money by false pretenses in Canadian County; and burglary and theft in El Paso, Texas.
The former Bank of Oklahoma teller, SHANA NICOLE HARPER, 27, of Oklahoma City, pled guilty to conspiracy on June 30, 2010. She is awaiting sentencing.
This case is the result of an investigation conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Scott E. Williams and Amanda Maxfield Green.
