Former Bookkeeper Serving Time for Church Embezzlement

| August 22, 2011

St. Isidore Catholic Church's former bookkeeper, Kathleen Dake, will spend the next several months behind bars, serving time for stealing more than $400,000 from the church.

The 58-year-old Blackhawk resident, who worked for the church from 2002 to 2010, was sentenced last week to 300 days in jail and three years probation after pleading no contest to five counts of grand theft through embezzlement.

She admitted to an enhancement that she took more than $150,000 from the church. She was also ordered to pay back the $425,244 she took from the church over about five years, using a credit card and checks.

Supervising Deputy District Attorney Steve Bolen said Dake used the church's money to pay for plastic surgery, vet clinic bills and utility bills for her home in Blackhawk. She also paid for services on her Porsche, trips to the Blackhawk Country Club and shopping trips at Anthropologie, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.
