Dunn County (WQOW) - An area bank teller is sentenced for helping herself to some of the bank's money.
Alexandra Hilderman worked at Bremer bank in Menomonie.
Investigators say she admitted taking nearly $4,000. They say she told them she did it because she had dire financial problems.
As part of a plea bargain the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. Hilderman was sentenced this week to five days in jail, and community service. She must also repay the money.
