CONVICTED OF STEALING FROM U.S. VETERANS - Residents at 174 Broadway St.- Gladys Hernandez, Wilfredo Hernandez, Jessica Rivera

One day in prison...what a joke...I am soooo happy I'm leaving this state...I can't even imagine what kind of extenuating circumstances gave these folks the benefit of the doubt??? Congratulations to the Counsel for the defense. Shame on the prosecutor.

I used to work at the VA Hospital in Bedford and Willie was a scum bag when I knew him then. He had no conscience about stealing from anybody, fellow employees and veterans. It was well known around the VA that he was doing these things. The judge who sentenced him to 1 day in jail should be ashamed of himself. This man has no remorse about what he has done. he should be ashamed of himself for stealing from disabled veterans who fought for this country. They will never pay their fine. but maybe they can go steal from somebody else to raise the money for their fines! but then again, maybe the VA will take him back to work there!!!!!!

Folks, Just to set the record straight. Mr. Hernandez was never a Supervisor in Housekeeping. He was a team leader. Also he was the first to scream discrimination if any one accused him of anything. Most people may have thought he was shady, but his dealings at the VA were never witnessed until the facts were revealed. .
