What a jerk!!! Her defense will probably be that she has a spending addiction and it wasn't her fault. Meanwhile the business owner is out all of his hard earned money......employers should always run a background check on all new hires. It is always the ones you don't suspect!!

She and her husband are psychopaths...they have no concept of the difference between right and wrong.

Sounds like the husband could be culpable too. Surely he must have known that they couldn't afford that kind of lavish lifestyle on their salary. But then again, I guess she could have fooled him too. Psychopath is truly the word. She should not be allowed to get out of jail. She's a detriment to society! I just hope she didn't teach her kids bad habits.

Thats what happens when a business lets one person be in charge of accounts payable and receivable.

This can happen so fast and easy if you are not on top of things. Employees can steal you blind with a teaspoon of your money each and everyday. They also can steal from you with the clock, wasting time, not showing up for work, etc etc. Good help is hard to find even with unemployment as high as it is. Honest seems to have been tossed out the window.

It must be hard to be a business owner in California. I work for a large corporation and have always thought people who start their own businesses must have a lot of gumption to try and make it a success. If you are successful then I imagine people come out of the woodwork wanting a piece of the action. Of course the biggest crooks are the government who tax the heck out of you. Then if you are a big success you will be hated and called greedy too. I salute those of you who attempt it and wish you the best for your efforts. I am a loyal customer to a good product and good service.

This is also a good lesson for all the owners and managers out there... spend the extra $100 to run a good criminal background check during the hiring process when someone is going to be handling that much money. They would have seen the credit card fraud and avoided the entire mess.

It is also astonishing to me that the business owner and his accounting firm took 4 years to figure this out considering how much money she was stealing. It seems like this owner should also be looking really hard at BofA... having opened several business accounts I know you need to provide a business license and some other documentation... so why are they letting a customer deposit hundreds of checks that they could have easily figured out don't belong to her. How about at least a phone call to the actual payee or the company that issued the check to make sure this woman was supposed to be depositing these checks into her account.

I hope the greed and material things were worth missing your children grow up... really sad.

A gated housing community adjacent to Hollywood Park?
The real crime is her choice of neighborhoods.

I wonder if she took out a million dollar life insurance on her husband prior to buying him a Ducati motorcycle?

At least her parents coughed up a 300,000 fine for raising a stupid child(Pen Code 483.847).

A typical company that grew fat during the housing boom, so arrogant about their success they hire via gut feeling. Good for them.

She missed her calling. She should be a member of Congress, she could still steal, but no crime would be committed.

I wouldn't be surprised if she had a connection to someone working at Bank of America. That person at the bank probably let her deposit the money into her account and got a kickback in return. Greed will make people do real stupid things.

I hope they throw her in prison so she'll have 1.6 million reasons to realize she's a LOSER.

A $22,000 motorcycle and the husband didn't blink an eye? He's as guilty as she is. Throw the book at her! Bu-bye...hope it was worth it, have fun in prison.
