Bookkeeper who stole $300,000 from charity organization sentenced to year in jail

Posted: Updated:

VISTA (CNS) - A bookkeeper who stole $300,000 from the charity that employed her for 23 years was sentenced Monday a year in jail and ordered to repay the money.

Judy T. Gordon, 79, pleaded guilty in March to grand theft and two counts of forgery.

The San Marcos resident retired in November 2010 after working for more than two decades for a local chapter of Trauma Intervention Programs National Inc. The group sends volunteers to emergency scenes at the request of police and fire department officials to calm victims of sudden trauma.

Gordon's criminal acts came to light after she retired, said Deputy District Attorney Anna Winn.

Gordon wrote 181 checks to herself, dating back to 2007, and forged a supervisor's signature, the prosecutor said.
