LITTLE ROCK — A former bank executive pleaded guilty Tuesday to fraud and other charges.

Kelly Harbert, former vice president of One Bank & Trust, entered a guilty plea before U.S. District Judge Leon Holmes to charges of bank fraud, money laundering and identity theft.

She had been charged under federal grand jury indictments with 17 counts of bank fraud, two counts of money laundering and one count of aggravated identity theft.

Harbert, 46, faces up to 30 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million on the bank fraud conviction, up to 10 years in prison and a find of up to $250,000 on the money laundering conviction and up to five years in prison and $250,000 fine on the identity theft conviction.

In court, Harbert admitted to hatching a plan to defraud several banks by obtaining funds under false pretenses and then using the money for herself.

As vice president of One Bank, she approved unsecured loans and lines of credit in the names of her parents without their knowledge or authorization, the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Arkansas said in a news release.

Harbert also used the names of her parents and some of her bank clients without their knowledge to secure loans and lines of credit with other banks, authorities said.
