Two Orange County women were convicted after they altered a check from a Newport Beach law firm to the amount of $285,000. Alexa Polar, 35 and Robin Pabello, 34 will each serve 305 days in county jail and 3 years probation.

Polar, worked as a paralegal at the law firm when the altered check was taken. The women used the funds for a lavish shopping spree to Tiffany & Co., private jet to New York, cashier's checks and property lease on a multi-million dollar home in Murietta.

The crime was discovered after the bank that issued the check rejected the check deposited by the receiving bank.
