It seems Maui surfer Clay Marzo has lost pretty much everything after his bookkeeper allegedly siphoned off more than $400,000 over the past six and half years, according to a story on The Maui News.

Felicidad Rivera, 51, pleaded not guilty during her arraignment Monday in U.S. District Court in Honolulu. Her bail was set at $50,000. . . Marzo, 27, lost his home and his life savings and was left $30,000 in debt, his mother, Jill Marzo Clark, said in a phone interview Tuesday. Clark said that she also lost a significant amount of money. . . According to the federal indictment, Rivera wrote herself 193 checks from January 2010 to October 2015 totaling more than $330,000 from the accounts of Marzo and his mother. Rivera also paid more than $75,000 of her own Chase credit card charges from Marzo’s account in 87 transactions from May 2010 to September 2015.

The Marzo’s say they treated Rivera like family. If she is guilty we hope Rivera spends the rest of her life in a high desert prison.
