CLASS REUNION: When the trial of a former Saks Fifth Avenue fine jewelry saleswoman accused of improperly using discounts and returns to boost her commissions finally got under way in New York Criminal Court Thursday, the defendant found herself being accused by something of a kindred spirit. Cecille Villacorta, fired in January 2006 and now facing a 316-count grand jury indictment including charges of grand larceny, heard testimony from Randi Riley, who investigated the accused on Saks’ behalf and said her probe turned up dummy stockkeeping units and associate ID numbers, unauthorized gift card discounts and returns of nonexistent merchandise going back about six years and totaling about $1.4 million. The transactions could have inflated the seasonal sales figures used to determine the saleswoman’s bonus, testified Riley, who herself was laid off last month when her now former employer eliminated 1,100 jobs.
