A former accountant and trustee was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing more than $500,000 in trust fund money and using it to buy a doll collection, county prosecutors said today.

Margot Jean Strawn, 58, of Laguna Hills, was ordered to pay the money back in restitution to the victims, according to the Orange County District Attorney's office.
