Steamboat Springs, Colo. (AP) The second of two Steamboat Springs bank tellers accused of stealing about 1.3 million dollars from customers' accounts has pleaded guilty.

Pamela Jean Williams entered her plea today to felony theft and forgery charges.

Any prison term she receives will be capped at 10 years, under a plea agreement approved by Routt County Court Judge James Garrecht.

Authorities say Williams and fellow Alpine Bank teller Terri Dawn Moody Fatka hand-picked customers who kept poor track of their accounts and used forged documents to steal money from them a little at a time for two years.

Fatka pleaded guilty to four counts each of felony theft and forgery on June 23 and was sentenced to eight years in prison. She also must serve five years of parole after her release and pay a yet-to-be determined amount of restitution.

Williams' sentencing is scheduled for February 9.
