OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A former Utah bank manager who was convicted of stealing more than $565,000 was sentenced to more than 2 years in prison.

The Standard-Examiner reports 33-year-old Daniel Scott Frischknecht was sentenced in federal court last week, receiving a more severe sentence than expected after he submitted a forged letter of praise from an employer.

The former manager of Zions Bank branch in Bountiful pleaded guilty in February after authorities discovered he embezzled money to buy a house.

Before his sentencing previously scheduled for May, prosecutors say they discovered Frischknecht had forged a letter of support from a new employer. Prosecutors sought a harsher sentence as a result with the amended sentencing recommendation describing Frischknecht as "a thief and a liar."

He will have two years of probation following prison.
