Randy Rafael Thomas worked as bookeeper for sushi restaurant Masa, where it costs a cool $650 per person to dine. He pilfered $100,000 and spent more than half of it on Internet porn.
A sex-obsessed ex-bookkeeper at one of the city’s priciest restaurants pleaded guilty Friday to stealing nearly $100,000 from the sushi hot spot — more than half of which he spent feeding his porn addiction. Randy Rafael Thomas earned a $34,000 base salary at Masa, an exclusive, $650-per-person restaurant inside the Time Warner Center — but that wasn’t nearly enough to satiate his hunger for “live Internet adult entertainment.”
