RTC Judge Rosendo Bandal Jr. imposed the sentence on Cherie Mae Catan-Hipe, who was accused of pocketing more than P100,000 in cash in three transactions of Eight Wonders Travel and Tours Inc., owned by Elsie Lee of Lee Plaza .
Court records show that Hipe took P31,109, the amount paid by Davida Manugas, a client of Eight Wonders Travel and Tours Inc. to pay for her Philippine Airlines ticket for a one-way flight from Manila to San Francisco , USA .
