A woman involved in one of the worst cases of embezzlement ever handled by the Honolulu prosecutor’s office was sentenced Wednesday.
A judge sentenced Lola Jean Amorin, 69, to 25 years in prison.
According to an indictment, from January 1998 to January 2017, Amorin stole nearly $7 million from her employer The Arc of Hawaii. She used the money to buy five homes, vacations and cars.
Amorin must also pay The Arc $6,696,165 in restitution, and the Department of Taxation restitution totaling $337,554. She changed her plea to no contest earlier this year.
Her husband, Albert Amorin, failed to file tax returns and report taxable income. He was sentenced to five years probation and ordered to pay the Department of Taxation restitution totaling $337,554.
