Dental office manager sent to prison for embezzlement

Dental assistant used money for concerts and limos.


A dental office manager was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday for embezzling $353,000 from her employer, squandering it on items that ranged from a Beyoncé concert to a limousine ride to a church.

SaembezzleMisty Casanova, 34, also is alleged to have spent the money on Lil Wayne and Chamillionaire concerts, Spurs games, a monster truck rally, a quinceañera, multiple hair appointments and to pay for a divorce. In addition, she transferred more than $900 to her boyfriend's prison commissary account, court documents state.

Assistant District Attorney Trey Banack told state District Judge Ron Rangel that Casanova stole from Dr. Fred Seitz roughly 600 times from 2006 to 2010 — filling out checks for cash to herself and using company credit cards.
