Posted By CotoBlogzz

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA  - Patricia Rosario Casas, a  Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) employee was convicted and sentenced today for stealing money that had been paid by customers for services.

Casas, 44, Anaheim, pleaded guilty to four felony counts of computer access and fraud and four misdemeanor counts of petty theft. Casas was sentenced to 90 days in jail, three years of formal probation, and restitution.

According to the Orange County District Attorney’s (OCDA) office, on  four occasions between July 28, 2010, and Feb. 15, 2011, Casas charged four customers for services at the Westminster DMV office and accepted cash payments from them. After the transaction, Cases changed the cash fees in the computer system to show as a "no fee transaction" to make it appear as if the services she provided were free. Cases took a total of $106. 

On Feb. 15, 2011, Casas' supervisor became suspicious after a customer complained that he did not receive change following a transaction with Casas. The case was reported to the California DMV Investigations Division, who investigated the case and arrested Casas.
