Platten, 30, 569 Fourth East, Centerville, pleaded guilty to one count of committing a computer crime, a second-degree felony, and is scheduled for sentencing June 6.Platten admitted that while working as a teller at the credit from December of last year through February, he diverted $14,100 from the accounts of customers into his own account.
Platten entered the plea at a pre-trial hearing in 2nd District Court, where he was scheduled for trial on May 17.
According to defense attorney Glen Cella, Platten agreed to plead guilty in return for the Davis County Attorney's Office not opposing a motion at sentencing to reduce the crime from a second- to third-degree felony.
Platten faces a prison term of one to 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000 on the charge.
