Ex-FDIC employee faces up to 20 years in prison for government property theft

New York District Judge Sterling Johnson Jr. convicted former Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. employee Allison Aytes for stealing FDIC property, with a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

Aytes in August 2015 used her office computer to apply for jobs with financial institutions that have living wills listed in the FDIC. After she was contacted for a possible position at one of the banks, she logged on to an FDIC database and printed living will information on that particular bank.

She resigned from her position in the FDIC's Office of Complex Financial Institutions on Sept. 16, 2015.

A review of FDIC data loss prevention software revealed that Aytes copied numerous FDIC electronic files to USB drives, including living wills of U.S. banks to which she applied for employment.
