Coastside tax accountant Mark Christopher Sturm was arraigned back in 2017 on five felony counts of embezzling from his clients. The case has been postponed numerous times. On October 7 in San Mateo County Superior Court (case #16NF013225A), Sturm made a "no contest" plea bargain, with minor jail time and repaying his victims. See links above for details. We hope to say "case closed" to this fiasco, but watch here for any updates or follow-ups from Riptide's Remarkable Roving Reporter Alan Wald.
