[UPDATED with Restitution Order:] Elyse Marie Kennedy, Bookkeeper with Herman Munster Bangs, Guilty of Embezzling $129,000 From Church
That's the amount attorney's agreed upon in the wake of the 37-year-old Santa Anan's March guilty plea to forgery in the theft of $129,000 from the church between 2007 and 2009.
It's unknown how she'll come up with the scratch, but under Judge Erick Larsh's order Kennedy must prove the funds were obtained legally. She still has time to think up a way to make money, having previously been sentenced by Larsh to two years and eight months in state prison.
