What a sad story for everyone involved. I used to know Julie when she was younger and find it hard to believe that she would do something like this. She came from a good family and, unfortunately, they are the ones who will suffer. Hopefully they can keep it together for those two years & slowly rebuild their life when Julie returns.

Why is the husband not going down with her . She dimed him out in court claiming he new about it so he is just a guilty as her .
Also Where is the IRS in this scene . Wes Snipes got three years for not claiming income in Fla.

It is about time people start getting some real time for their criminal actions. Here in Brattleboro Tina Squires stole 75,000+ and Julie Houle Stole $200,000+ with barely any punishment. No wonder people just keep on stealing!!!

Yankee guy you are 100% correct, Tommy spent money on a drunken sailor on himself and his kids, he needs to be going to the pen to. Unbelievable the rat got away with it and nothing happend to him. While Julie is to blame, that fat worthless husband of hers ought to take some himself.

Not enough jail time. She caused people to loose their jobs and financial problems for all involved. She will be out in 1 yr. We need very stiff punishment for these so called white collar crimes esp Wall St.

and the former sheriff of Windhan county embezzled well over $60,000 only to get a slap on the wrist and even her felony conviction reduced to a mere misdemeanor!(this while the Vermont laws on shoplifting say you are a felon for stealing anything valued over $100 !! Great way to show the citizens your f***ing corrupt criminal hypocrisy State's Attorney biiitch!(who the dumb sheeple of this county just re-elected!)

'Yankee' asked "Where is the IRS in this scene"
-The feds are the ones who convicted her, but it's a theft case not a failure to report 'income' case, and technically the IRS is not a part of the federal govt., neither is the privately owned "Federal" Reserve which the IRS is the collection agency for.

She should get at least another year tacked on to her sentence for criminal idiocy. Did she really think she could steal from a company to the point of bankruptcy without getting caught? That is staggeringly stupid.

I'm a small printer. I would like more details - How specifically was she able to do this? Was the company owners really looking and their financial docs every month? What controls should be put into place in smaller operations to avoid this from happening.

According to Keene sentinel she has to pay the IRS $80,000 in taxes for her unclaimed income. Also hubby should be on trial. He has a medical problem called Dr.Shopping. Prescription pain meds are very expensive.

Unbelievable.

This useless woman ruined countless lives and is crying victim.

This was a small family printing business that was having a tough enough go with all the changes in their industry.

The employees were hard working and just trying to put food on the table for their families, and send their kids to college.

The owners were exactly the same. Hard working and trying to help their kids and employees have something.

Because Julie, this part-time book keeper, felt she was entitled to more than everyone else, she betrayed those who trusted her and took. And her husband helped by turning a blind eye to all the cash coming in. And he has joined the victim march...

The result?

Untold employees lost their jobs. Their kids will not go to college. Their lives are deeply damaged because of Julie and Tom.

The owners have lost almost everything, except belief in each other. They will slowly rebuild their business, but will be starting over.

Julie and Tom - for $700K+ they destroyed their family; swindled their friends; and destroyed many lives.

This is not justice. This reflects a state of mediocrity, compromise, and zero conviction in their own laws. It's a breakdown of society and community.

Speaking of community, where are the banks that enabled this to happen from the beginning? Their employees cashed obviously forged and altered checks. Is there no liability there? Don't they require identification and have authorized signatures on file? Why aren't they stepping up? They enabled this to happen, yet create a false sense of security with customers who feel security is adequate to protect against such activities. Do they not stand up for their customers? Do they not back the communities they serve? Who was the bank that helped Julie steal? Whoever you are, you have families in your community to help. Step up.

Hey Julie and Tom's Daughter? I can't believe that you would try to JUSTIFY what your mother did and are trying to play the VICTIM CARD? Your mother is a greedy selfish LOSER who thought she would get away with this heinous crime and is not a bit remorseful except for herself! And you actually think your mother is a good one? Are you for real? GOOD MOTHERS do not STEAL, LIE,or CHEAT!!! So I can guess why you are defending her is because you were not raised in a proper home! This broad did not steal a candy bar for Christ's Sakes, she stole over a half a million dollars from people who treated her like she was family and you have the nerve to try to spin that you all are the VICTIMS? I guess in your pea brain you fail to see what this loss did to the family. This was something they built out of love, an honest living, they trusted your loser mother never dreaming for one second she was ripping them off and there is no way in hell she can ever repay the money so I think the 2 yrs is a total joke, but she will not be out in a year, fed time, there is no good time so while this is not nearly enough time, at least her sorry ass will be in prison, While she did not steal as much as that scum Maddof, as far as I am concerned she ranks right up there with him and should be doing at least 20 yrs. SO you can whine and snivel all you want, your mother is a total low life loser and from what I can gather so is your father so it is easy to see why you think that you all are the victims.

julieandtomsdaug hter: Please spare me you crying and "feel bad for me" I have know your parents and worked with them for a number of years, the only thing that is a shame here is Tom is not going to jail as well, I used to listen to him brag at work how he had this how he had that, were going here were going there, Now we see where he got the money for it, sadly your mom covered for him so he does not have to go to jail to, I can only hope SSI looks into him and he gets caught for fraud there, because we all know he is quite cabalble of working, just to fat and lazy. Maybe you and your brother will tuen out a little diffrent but it's not looking good for either of you right now, you reap what you sow little girl. I think your mom is a good woman and she stole to help your worthless father, maybe you and your brother ought to step back and look at him.
