One year would actually mean how long in terms of time served and good behavior? A week or so?

If she was black she never would have had the opportunity to steal the money in the first place.

It is regrettable and transparent she has received an exceptional and diminished punishment
Connected to her on-going corruption and exploitation of the Public trust based upon considerations not reserved for others who may have committed much less.
And they would want us to believe that Justice is blind:
Although not stated it would appear she will be entitled to work release each day. How does one find employment so fast with a felony charge pending and then be granted one year and work release????

If you are correct, and she now works for this large Law Firm in Lancaster as you suggest, Which interestingly also represented her, It certainly becomes apparent the good old boy network remains alive and well.
York County Officials have successfully spun her ongoing criminal abuses perpetrated upon the Public trust as slight and insignificant acts of virtue very brilliantly. One would think she was the avowed public Official of the decade.
This woman has continuously committed an on-going act of criminal fraud against the public trust with little to no consequence. She has received the minimal sentence provided, will not spend one full day in prison while on work release and be home in a few months.
Wonder if the County Commissioners and D.A. would be willing to offer we tax payers the same deal, Not a bad reward for a few months of free room and board in the current or even a good economy.

After you read what she actually will have to serve, work release and "less than a year" in the County, with the officials already agreeing she won’t pay back the funds, I'll take the deal and go on a very nice vacation later.

York County corruption is so profound and vast its ridiculous. As a former employee I saw first hand what goes on there and it is nothing short of criminal and goes all the way to the very top. I am not a disgruntled employee either I chose to leave on my own because of the criminal things I witnessed....some of which included dumping incriminating documents and emails so that anyone filing "a right to know" request doesn't see what York Counties top officials are doing on the clock...this pales in comparison to the other things I have seen. Mike Flannelly truly does have his work cut out for him. Its worse than a good ol boys club in there.
Responsibility Lost

Most of us have always been under the impression and held to the standard that as stated by prior U.S. President Truman,“ The Buck stops here”. In the case of York County Assistant Chief Clerk and her blatant and manifest on-going theft of Public Funds and abuse of the Public Trust, It would appear the Board of Commissioners and their Chief Clerk/ County Administrator Charles Noll put as much distance as possible as expeditiously as possible between themselves and any responsibility or liability for the lack of procedure and supervision which allowed this act perpetrated upon we the tax payers to go un checked under their watch.
This unfortunately gives me cause to have concern about what else they may be allowing to occur. I have not yet heard one of them take any responsibility for their failure to find this several years ago. Than it was the U.S. postal service which had to bring it to their attention. Providing cause to wonder how long and how much more public funds she would have helped herself to.
The Commissioners’ and Chief Clerk,( Her Immediate supervisor) who is paid over $100,000.00 per year would to supervise her would like the public to believe they found and fixed a small problem. Where is their responsibility to manage on our behalf? What other tax dollars are being transferred to other County employee’s personal account we are not aware of.
“ THE BUCK STOPS HERE” at the top as well. Otherwise what is the point of a $100,000.00 plus supervisor.

I wonder who intervened on her behalf to cut her the deal limited only to those of privilege and political favors.
Less than one year in York County Prison, Go home each morning to get ready to drive to her Attorney’s office in Lancaster for work release, And she gets to keep the money.
All one needs to do is read the same newspaper every day to see what other individuals receive for far less criminal offense. They are provided several years confined to the State Prison with no work release, Fines, Restitution and court fees.
Although the Commissioners would have we the public and tax payers believe this act was just a minor insignificant incident.
Our D.A., Commissioners , and $100,000.00 salary per year plus County Administrator did not provide the public taxpayers the equal justice this country was founded upon, This was a political deal and if the trunk smells like a decayed body was in it, Chances are it was.
