MINORITY BANK SCAMMER GETS MAX

PITTSBURGH - A federal judge has sentenced Jammie E. Harris to the maximum prison term for her role in fleecing Pittsburgh's only minority-owned bank of more than $3 million.

"I regret a lot of the things I have done," said Harris in a rambling statement to Senior U.S. District Judge Alan Bloch.

Judge Bloch interrupted Harris' plea for leniency citing her 36 prior convictions before imposing the 115 month sentence.

Harris was also ordered to pay $1.1 million in restitution.

In 2006, Harris and several friends discovered a computer glitch where the former Dwelling House Savings & Loan's system was failing to track money transfers to her PayPal account and decided to take advantage of the glitch to enrich herself.

The bank was not able to absorb the losses and regulators closed the bank as insolvent two years ago.
