SHREVEPORT, Louisiana — A Homer man has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $59,000 from his Claiborne Parish employer's bank account.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said 46-year-old John Bob Jr. pleaded guilty Tuesday before U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote to one count of bank fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, Bob used his employer's debit card and personal identification number to make about 200 withdrawals totaling $59,602 from May 2012 to July 2013 from banks across northwest Louisiana.

Bob faces up to 32 years in prison, five years of supervised release, and a $1 million fine.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 13.
