While we are free to choose our actions, we are not free to choose the consequences of our actions. As an educated adult, she should have known the consequences for grand larceny would not be good.

She has received FULL pay and healthcare for nearly a full year since this happened. Schools should be able to fire them sooner than that! It take hearing to do so a year later, sometimes two and three years after the fact

Ya know. I don't like her or her son but they didn't ring up some groceries from Walmart. They weren't stealing from someone's porch. They were taking pennies from a corporation that treats it workers like shit and shits on America by pushing everything overseas... I could think of worse things teachers have done and gotten away with

The point isn't whether or not who you steal from can afford the loss, like walmart certainly can. If that was the premise on which our laws were based, anyone could rationalize and defend ANY crime ----- "He deserved to be shot" for example. The issue with Amy is her general lack of moral character and good judgment, never mind the fact that she was willing to throw her own kid under the bus for her own selfish purposes. She has the same nut-job thinking that her potty daddy Hank has ---- he says his Potsdam shitter displays are "art" and gets away with it! No, Amy is a catty little nasty criminal who got caught and deserved to get canned for it! Her huge ego convinced her that she was somehow entitled to the same freebies that others were paying for. Ha ha! Anyone who defends ANY PART of what she did is slithering thru the grass right next to her!

Yup and I'm sure she has done worse too! She's got no morals so what would stop her? Daddy doesn't care about how he makes Potsdam look with his disgusting toilets. They come from a long line of entitled scumbags.

There is no excuse for what she did, but has anybody thought about it from her position? A full time teacher working with low functioning middle school kids all day and then still has to have a second job (and at Walmart no less) just to get by? I think that if she had pled stress induced insanity she would have been acquitted.

From her position? Seriously? It was her choice to work in Special Ed. She brought on her own debt that forced her to get a second job to pay that off. She put herself in both of these positions. That still does not excuse grand larceny. How about a single mother of young children, working full time, not living off the system, fighting to get child support from the father because he decided married life and being a parent wasn't for him anymore.....now there's some stress induced insanity for you!!! Is it okay for her to steal? Ms. Jones gets no sympathy. She knew what she was doing and needs to pay the consequences!
