57-year-old Angela DiPietro-Sabatine, of Pennsauken, Camden County, was the bookkeeper for Delaware River Waterfront, a Philadelphia-based non-profit corporation. According to Patch.com, managing the DRWC accounts payable and receivable and the general ledger were also among DiPietro-Sabatine responsibilities.

But she reportedly helped herself to the funds she was overseeing, to the tune of $2.6M, by manufacturing phony expenses and forging checks.

Over the better part of the last decade, DiPietro-Sabatine is said to have used the stolen money to take luxury vacations and gamble away funds meant for the betterment of the Delaware River waterfront area in Philly (which includes Spruce Street Harbor Park).

DiPietro-Sabatine now finds herself in a world of trouble. She's facing a mandatory 6-year minimum sentence and more than $6M in fines and restitution if found guilty on charges including wire fraud, bank fraud, and identity theft. Her actions were so egregious the Acting United States Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams got involved.

I can't imagine anything she bought for herself or getaways she enjoyed were worth the nightmare she finds herself in now. It can't have been worth all this.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
