Law Office Manager Charged with Grand Theft by Embezzlement

In Tustin, Californa, in Orange County, a law office manager has been charged with embezzling more than $480,000, after prosecutors allege she used the money for her own personal pleasure. Donna Joy Henderson, has been arrested for 14 felony counts of falsifying records and a felony count of grand theft by embezzlement by the Orange County District Attorney's Office. 

Prosecutors say between January 2003 and September 2009, she was responsible for all financial accounts for Rinos & Martin, LLP. She wrote 122 company checks that she deposited into her own personal bank account. Prosecutors say she used the embezzled funds to maintain a "lavish lifestyle," purchasing such things as timeshare properties, cruises, jewelry and collectibles from the Home Shopping Network, home improvements, an indoor sauna, and visits to pampered pet day spas and gambling.

To conceal her theft activity, prosecutors say she falsified the firm's financial records, recording the stolen checks as "void" and altering monthly statements from the bank. Tustin police detectives began investigating the reported theft after a new accountant hired by the firm noticed that one of the checks had been marked "void" and made payable to herself. If convicted, Henderson faces a maximum sentence of 14 years in a California state prison.
