Authorities are investigating why $1.2 million, and possibly a lot more, is missing from Los Angeles County Superior Court bank accounts, and they are focusing on whether a senior accountant illegally distributed or even stole the money, court officials said Tuesday. The accountant, Gregory Pentoney, was sent a letter of discharge from his post as top auditor for the court system earlier this month, court officials said. Pentoney could not be reached for comment.
