Ex-Employee Gets Probation in Law Firm Theft

A Texas woman who was accused of stealing more than $30,000 from the law firm for which she worked has pleaded guilty to theft.

However, 24-year-old Christina Coronado won’t have to serve any time. She was sentenced to 10 years of probation for stealing from the Zimmerman Law Firm in Waco and must also repay approximately $31,000, according to KWTX and KXXV-TV.

Authorities say she embezzled by failing to deposit client payments into the law firm’s accounts.

It appears from the KWTX article that Coronado’s record might be expunged if she successfully completes her probation.
