Bookkeeper who stole $70,000 from her job to fuel gambling addiction gets 5 years in prison [View all]

A bookkeeper who stole more than $70,000 from a Sandy business while working there for a year and used it to go gambling was sentenced Monday to five years in prison.

Paula L. Prosch, 36, also was ordered by Clackamas County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Jones to repay $58,276 to Trail Pals Horse Trailer Accessory Store. She pleaded guilty last month to first-degree theft and first-degree forgery.

The company hired Prosch, the domestic partner of a friend of the owners, in November 2014. She wrote checks to herself and used the company's debit card, court records show. She took $1,145 on the month she was hired and as much as $13,600 in September 2015.

She logged the money as legitimate business expenses, at times claiming they were payments to vendors, court records said.
