Calif. Office Manager Sentenced For Embezzlement

FULLERTON (AP) — An office manager for a police union in Orange County has been sentenced to four years in prison for embezzling more than $360,000 by changing the amount on her paycheck after her bosses had signed it.

Prosecutors said 47-year-old Cindy Ann Su’a was sentenced Wednesday in a Fullerton courtroom and ordered to pay more than $1 million in restitution, taxes and fines.

Su’a previously pleaded guilty more than 140 counts, including forgery and fraud.

Authorities say Su’a was the only paid employee of the Anaheim Police Association and was supposed to earn $65,000 each year. But prosecutors say she began increasing her paycheck in 2007 by thousands of dollars.

She also used the union’s online bank accounts to pay her bills.
