Timothy C. Nagle, 53, pleaded guilty to the indictment before United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson.
In connection with the guilty plea, from Oct. 3, 2010, to Jan. 2014, Nagle, a Senior Vice President at First National Bank, in Hollidaysburg, Pa., submitted approximately 24 false expense reports, thereby receiving money he was not entitled to.
