A part-time bookkeeper was sentenced to eight years in prison for embezzling more than $750,000 from two companies that she used purchase a Cadillac Escalade and a Toyota FJ Cruiser, racing motorcycles, several European vacations, a $20,000 dune buggy for her children and cosmetic breast-enhancement surgeries for herself.

Lisa Jeanette Dorman, 43, of Huntington Beach, was spending up to about $20,000 per month over her five-year crime spree, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office, which listed among her purchases a two-week, $47,000 Italian getaway.

Dorman was hired in October 2007 as the part-time bookkeeper for Stratus Development LLC, where she embezzled more than $171,000 over about two years by writing herself extra salary checks and depositing them into phony vendor accounts.

She resigned in November 2009 to do the same work--and embezzlement--at Southern California Contractors Inc., where she stole more than $578,000 over about three years, much the same way as she did with Stratus.
