COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A 40-year-old Missouri woman has been sentenced for stealing from an Iowa bank while working there as a teller.

Prosecutors say Tiffany Stanley, of Tarkio, Mo., was sentenced Wednesday in a U.S. District Court in Council Bluffs. She'd been living in Shenandoah, Iowa, while working at Great Western Bank of Riverton. The judge gave Stanley four months in prison and four months of home confinement. Stanley also was ordered to pay more than $25,000 in restitution to the bank.

Stanley had pleaded guilty.

Prosecutors say that on Nov. 17, 2012, Stanley told Fremont County deputies that she was forced to give money to a male robber. A subsequent investigation showed that Stanley reported the robbery to cover her theft of bank money.
