November 05, 2009|Mike Anton

The former chief financial officer of Orange County's Orangewood Children's Foundation was convicted Wednesday of stealing more than $780,000 from the nonprofit organization, which serves abused children.

Tracy Lynn Salcido, 40, pleaded guilty in Orange County Superior Court to 206 felony counts of forgery and 20 felony counts of falsifying records. She was sentenced to 12 years in prison and ordered to pay $1.15 million in restitution and legal and accounting fees stemming from the case.

Prosecutors say that from 1999 to 2005, Salcido forged 206 checks from Orangewood's accounts and deposited them in an outside business account. Salcido used the stolen money for a pool and spa at the Yorba Linda home she shared with her husband, for vacations, for shopping sprees and for vehicles, including a BMW.
