Romance Novelist's Bookkeeper Gets Slammed In Court For Shameless Thievery!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal Matters


This is seriously effed!!

She might as well have been taking cash right out of her wallet!

Famous romance novelist Danielle Steel's bookkeeper of almost 20 years, Kristy Watts, has plead guilty to stealing up to $768,000 from her boss by manipulating the financial accounts she was supposed to be keeping record of!

Apparently, Watts modified the payroll to pay herself an extra salary and pocketed cash she recorded as payments to fake vendors. She even used Steel's credit card rewards points to buy gift cards and plane tickets for herself!

That's seriously effed. What makes someone think that that's okay??

However, we doubt that girl will ever touch another thing that's not hers again, because she has been sentenced to almost three years in prison on top of having to reimburse Steel almost $1 million and the government $60,000 in taxes. She is also required to do 400 hours of community service!


What do U think?? Does the punishment fit the crime??

    Perez & his minions are incapable of writing anything correctly unless they're plagiarizing (excuse me, rephrasing) an already published source: "She might has well been taking cash right out of her wallet."

    Teeny fix: "She might has well been…" should be "She might as well have been."

    what makes someone think that that's okay?
    THE FACT that Danielle Steel is a multi-millionare who probably underpays her staff.

  7. 7

    for 3 years?
    no. she should get locked up more.
    for God's sake, she's been doing this for 20 years!!

    I LOVE YOU Perez, but please refrain from commenting on the grammar and spelling mistakes of others until you perfect your own writing. You have improved, but there is still room for improvement.

    the punishment totally fits the crime in this f**ked up world of our where you dont get half that time for abusing kids, rape and even murder! life is cheap, celebrities are not.

    Good for her, Danielle Steel doesn't deserve to make all that money writing stuff that a young child could just as easily write about. Probably she did not pay her employees enough, and I would have helped myself to her bundle too. The sentence is too stiff, give the girl a break for being so bright. At least she did not feel she wanted to be a slave to a talentless so-called "writer".

    That's rough, but YES!

    People should learn how to handle their own money.

    I am a Stock Broker and work on Walstreet, when stories like this suprise people it blows be away. It's sad but things of this nature are happening everyday. The 5 most crocked types of people in America are (In Order):

    1. Liberals
    2. Walstreet
    3. Lawyers
    4. Doctors
    5. Republicans

    That can happen when you pay strangers to be in charge of YOUR money.
    Your money needs your oversight.

    Re: SnowBoarder4LIFE – You are making a mistake: No. 1 crooks are Republicans and the last ones are my beloved liberals. Get your facts straight.

    Re: SnowBoarder4LIFE – by thy way in case anyone at your work asks, its actually Wall Street not walstreet lolz

    You would be surprised how often this happens. Every place I've worked the person in charge of payroll does this on some level. If you let someone have free control of your money they will most likely take advantage of that. It too tempting.
