    SANTA ANA – A former accountant and trustee was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing more than $500,000 in trust fund money and using it to buy a doll collection, county prosecutors said today.

    Margot Jean Strawn, 58, of Laguna Hills, was ordered to pay the money back in restitution to the victims, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.
    ...
    On Monday, Strawn pleaded guilty to two felony counts of grand theft with sentencing enhancements for aggravated white collar crime over $500,000 and property damage over $150,000 and $50,000, prosecutors said.

    Farrah Emami, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office, said investigators discovered Strawn spent the money buying dolls online.

    A friend of mine has a doll collection that is probably in the 6 figure range.

    Useless. They're probably not even the kind of dolls you can play with.

    I invested in beanie Babies back in the day! I'm not rich yet, one day
    I swear my daughter just had to have every one that came out, we do have a 39 gallon hefty bag full of them, that and a quarter will probably get me .25 cents!
