Accountant Margot Jean Strawn, 58, has been sentenced to four years in prison for stealing $500,000 from a trust account. What is a little more striking is what she used the money for: to buy dolls on the Internet.
The Orange County District Attorney’s office says that Strawn wrote herself checks while managing a trust for the Pellissier family. She stole more than $500,000 between May 31, 2001, and Jan. 19, 2007 and then filed false tax returns for the fund.
Strawn is now headed from the doll house to the big house. She pleaded guilty to two felony counts of grand theft with sentencing enhancements for aggravated white collar crime over $500,000 and property damage over $150,000 and $50,000, prosecutors said.
