A paralegal and her husband have been indicted on suspicion of embezzling more than $1 million from the law firm where she worked.
The suspects are Rosanne and Michael Stogner. A grand jury indicted them this month in a series of thefts from Oaxaca, Bernal & Associates between March 2001 and May 2007.
Rosanne Stogner declined Monday to talk about the charges and her attorney, Dolph Quijano, did not return calls.
Rosanne Stogner was employed at the law firm at 1515 Montana as a paralegal and an office manager from 1999 to 2007, according to a complaint affidavit by police. Her responsibilities included preparing case files and paying bills.
But she also allegedly paid herself money to which she was not entitled.
Police alleged in the affidavit that Stogner made out checks to herself, to her husband, to his fence company and even to her daughter's personal trainer.
