NCUA Issues Prohibition Notices

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Dec. 29, 2017) – The National Credit Union Administration issued one prohibition order and two notices of prohibition in December. These three individuals are prohibited from participating in the affairs of any federally insured financial institution.

  • James Farrell, a former employee or institution-affiliated party of New Haven County Credit Union in North Haven, Connecticut, agreed and consented to the issuance of a prohibition order and agreed to comply with all of its terms to settle and resolve the NCUA Board’s claims against him.
  • Rhoda K. Pohina, also known as Rhodakwon Kuuleialihii Pohina, a former employee of Harrison District No. 2 Federal Credit Union in Colorado Springs, Colorado, pleaded guilty to the charge of theft. Pohina was sentenced to four years in prison and three years’ probation. 
  • Alexander B. Yarnall, a former employee of IBM Southeast Employees Credit Union in Delray Beach, Florida, pleaded guilty to the charge of theft, embezzlement or misapplication by a credit union employee. Yarnall was sentenced to 63 months in prison, three years’ supervised release, and was ordered to pay more than $1.7 million in restitution. 

Prohibition and administrative orders are searchable by name, institution, city, state, and year at NCUA’s Administrative Orders webpage. The webpage also provides links to the enforcement actions of federal banking agencies against other institutions or their affiliated parties.
