The article states they consolidated the counts while leaving the monetary amount the same. There are at least two ways to look at it, if the judge imposes sentence based on monetary amount it comes out the same OR if he was sentencing based on each instance or count, those sentences almost always run concurrently ether than consecutively so there's still no lessening of punishment incurred. Although Sutton is one of the very few judges I could see imposing some sentences to run consecutively rather than all concurrently.

Looks like she will finally be heading for a very long stay at the Menopause Manor.

I'm curious to see her sentence Bill. Not for any personal reasons but to my understanding this is a pretty "popular" church in the county and the judge has a little bit of a rep as a "hanging judge."

Many things have changed in that Church. My Daughter was married there several years ago. Personally I hope that she is looking at a sentence of 5-10 with probation after that. Restitution should be set at about 80%.

I would love to see her get what she deserves. I personally don't know how she lives with herself, but she is clearly happy and living it up...shows no remorse for her actions. I hope for at least 5 years. Very sad situation!

Well......I am in agreement that the book should be thrown at her, if for no other reason she has a known history of not being able to control the urge to take other folks money. The unfortunate thing is that history has shown that those criminals who have money or access to money will almost ALWAYS get a lesser sentence. It is sad but true that the way people look, (attractive), and the access to good legal representation and the personal connections through family, friends, law enforcement, politicians results in a very favorable sentence for the accused,(guilty in this case by her OWN admission after initially LYING MANY TIMES about her innocence). Now were she/he from a low socio-economic background, has had poor grooming/medical treatment to include teeth, hair, nails and is, of no fault of her own, just plain genetically ugly physically, with minimal or no education.....THAT is when the accused gets buried under the jail. I say these things because history for CENTURIES has shown this to be true. There are MANY recent examples of this aw well, OJ Simpson, Michael Jackson and on and on......So for all of you good ol' God fearing, decent, average, law abiding citizens out there ......mark my words....this young lady will get the very minimum of punishment. It breaks my heart to say this.

I hope she has to pay every penny back,working for 10 cents a day as a lunch nazi.
That means this bottom feeder will never get out of jail.
I hope she feels the love the inmates are gonna take from her sorry ass.Also she needs a good butt beating every week.

We were talking about the kinds of people who have money and ties that always have it easy when it comes to crimes they commit.

Yes, that's what I hear. I can't believe someone would even want to marry her knowing what a messed up person she is. Does anyone know what happened to Paul? They always acted so happy and in love...kinda sad.

The part of that story that struck me odd was his lack of complicity. He was some type of pastor/leadership figure at the church and worked for the preacher at the preacher's non church related business and he had no idea where all this extra money came from? Just sounded weird, at best, to me.
