Schwartz cried and apologized at sentencing, saying he'll spend the rest of his life asking for forgiveness.

Morissette says Schwartz stole her financial security and robbed her of her dreams.

She says Schwartz would have bankrupted her if she hadn't fired him and hired someone who discovered the theft.

Schwartz blamed his crimes on a gambling addiction but Morissette says he was jetting to exotic locations and living large.
