A Medford man who used to be a bank manager in Bend has been sentenced to prison time for embezzling about $91,000 from bank customers in Bend. The Department of Justice says Shawn Jewett, 32, of Medford took the money from U.S. Bank and U.S. Bank customers between May 2008 and November 2009, while working as a branch manager. He was sentenced yesterday to eight months in federal prison. Officials say he used the money to pay on his credit cards, car loans, a personal loan and to pay for a vacation. He moved money from different accounts and to avoid detection changed the addresses on the customer’s bank statements. As part of the sentence, he's also been ordered to pay his victims back.
