A secretary who conned more than half a million dollars from a prominent Sydney eye doctor has been jailed for up to 16 months.
The Magistrate said Joanne Ayoub's actions, which allowed her to live a life of luxury, were motivated by greed.
A medical episode cut short her sentencing just seven months ago but on Monday she was back at court to learn her fate.

The medical secretary was convicted of swindling $600,000 from a prominent Sydney doctor through fraudulent bank transfers, with his money paying for her lavish lifestyle.
On Monday she was handed a 16 month jail sentence and ordered to pay back $180,000.
"There is no evidence of need from the offender - I can only find these offences were committed for greed," the Magistrate said.
The victim, Dr Paul Beaumont, wasn't in court on Monday but told 7 News he was relieved Ms Ayoub is going to jail.
His only wish is that she got a longer sentence.
