The former vice president of First State Bank in Barboursville appeared in federal court Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to bank fraud charges.
Jackie Cantley pleaded not guilty in federal court. The indictment alleges Cantley approved loans to borrowers who did not qualify for loans. He allegedly forged signatures on document for his cousin, who was in prison. He allegedly failed to obtain, record, and compile loan documents accurately. Cantley resigned from the bank when the investigation began and moved to New York.
Eyewitness news obtained a copy of the criminal docket for Cantley's case from the U.S. District Court in northern New York, which stated, “The government... has concerns about some firearms at the defendant's residence.”
The New York State Police have been notified and are in the process of removing these firearms.
Cantley would not answer questions on his way into court. Cantley's mother told Eyewitness News she believes her son is not guilty.
Bank board member Dan Yon also spoke out.
"We want to thank Booth Goodwin and his staff at the U.S. Attorney's Office for their diligent investigation and this ongoing investigation at the bank," Yon said.
Cantley's trial date is set for Dec. 17 at 8:30 a.m.
