SAN DIEGO (AP) — A former bookkeeper charged with embezzling more than $3 million from a San Diego restaurant has been convicted of felony charges.

U-T San Diego says Tara Moore was found guilty Monday of grand theft, fraudulent appropriation by an employee, theft from an elder and document forgery. She's facing up to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Moore wrote checks to herself from Jack's La Jolla restaurant and although she later put about $1 million back into the business, her thefts led to its closure in 2009.

Jurors also found that Moore stole more than $1 million from another employer and her former mother-in-law, and illegally received government survivor benefits following the death of her third husband after she'd remarried.
