Carolyn Sue Causey, known as "Super Sue," 62, of Sparks, Nevada, has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for embezzling nearly $1 million from  ERA Realty, owned by her friend, Pat Schweigert.  According to authorities, over a period of about 4 years, between 2007 and 2010, Causey siphoned the funds from the company by issuing fraudulent checks, doctoring accounting logs and creating bogus accounts and payments for her own benefit.  Causey reportedly stole the money to support a gambling addiction.  In addition to the prison time, Causey has been ordered to pay $479,364 in restitution.
