Forty-seven-year-old Carrie Caesar was sentenced Thursday after pleading guilty to charges of theft, embezzlement and misapplication by a bank officer and employee. Authorities say she stole the money between 2003 and 2016 and targeted clients who were about 80 or older.

If the judge agrees, the team's dozens of creditors would have $192 to split between them.
