She should have gotten the 3 years in prison (not the county jail) for the felony theft in office. Theft of more than $145,000 is a lot of money. Her long-term (5 years)corrupt activity was well planned.

It doesn't matter what she spent the money on, the fact is she stole the taxpayers money.

Since she was a government employee she probably won't even have to spend all the 120 days in jail.

Sunbird you are pretty close on it but the facts if you look back steal a lot get a slap steal a little get the full wrath prison ect. So if you ever steal make it a big number! Ps. doesn't matter if you are gov. employed or not either.

The worst punishment for an embezzler is always to make them pay the money back (and public shame). The stolen money has already been spent so they are worse off than when they started the scheme.

I wonder where her daughter thought her mother was coming up with all the cash?

First off stealing is wrong and she should have never done this. But I know this person and she must have felt very desperate to steal. She is a good person and I understand that good people steal but sometimes with the society we are in she might have felt it was the only way to help her family. When you are backed into a corner sometimes you just don't know how to get out. I am not saying what she did was right but I just have some empathy for her.

Aw, she had to wipe tears away. I wonder if she had to do the same as she chose to become a criminal? Did any of her family or friends wonder where all the cash came from for a fancy wedding? How does the daughter feel about her wedding now? She is a criminal, and she willingly chose to be one. Pay the price, loser.

I admit, what she did was wrong, but this is a win win for the school system. They received the goods and services for the money spent, and now they are getting reimbursed due to a sticky fingered employee. It's like having your cake and eating it too. What a deal

The "do-gooders" on this blog make me sick. A "good" person does not rip-off the taxpayers and pay bills, luxuries with it. She is what is known as a "criminal", and deserves to be treated like one. She literally stole money out of our pockets.
