Crystina Renee Bock Gets 5 Years For Stealing $200,000 From Church Basket
Today, the 34-year-old Ladera Ranch resident learned her sentence.
For pleading guilty March 16 to 62 felony counts of grand theft with sentencing enhancement and allegations for aggravated white collar crime exceeding $100,000 and losses over $100,000, Bock was sentenced to five years in state prison and ordered to pay over $200,000 in restitution.

But from about the time she started through September 2008, Bock took more than 440 donation checks and deposited them into her personal account--and altered the church's financial records to hide her thefts.
The Orange County Sheriff's Department was called in September 2008 after the church's financial supervisors discovered a $1,000 check donated by a congregant had been cashed but was not deposited into the church's account, as recorded by Bock.
