A former bookkeeper who stole more than $500,000 from Tacoma’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul will spend almost four years in prison.
Angela Toney Saucido, 44, pleaded guilty last year to wire fraud and aggravated identity theft in U.S. District Court.
Judge Benjamin H. Settle sentenced her Monday to three years, nine months in prison. In addition, she must pay more than $543,000 in restitution to the charity.
Saucido stole the money by, among other schemes, transferring it from the charity’s bank accounts to her own, and making it look legitimate.
St. Vincent de Paul had to close a thrift shop and lay off a few workers because of the fraud.
Saucido stole the money between 2006 and 2013, and a new finance manager discovered the theft the next year.
