A Dedham man was sentenced yesterday in federal court to a year and a day in prison for embezzling about $200,000 from a Bank of America branch in Natick, according to the US attorney's office.
Robert W. Whalen, 36, pleaded guilty to embezzlement and misapplication of funds at a July hearing. He used different methods to embezzle money when he was performing duties as a bank teller at the branch, where he was an assistant manager.
Following his prison term, Whalen will serve three years of probation and pay $67,766 to Bank of America. He already has paid $132,234 in restitution.
