If she hadn't got the money, the CEO would have. Ah the great american corporation system, get rich on the backs of the masses.

you and your boss are dumb-for 3 to 6 years you stole money and no one realized that-how could someone buy 50 cars-24 houses and boats making 43,000. Also the banks did not catch this-you all have no brain-and did she not think she was going to get caught-stealing from people-eventually it would have caught up with you

She needs to be given the maximum sentence along with the fine,after all of her property is confiscated.Her husband should be left with nothing since he knew what was going on.

I think she should have to do 20 years and pay back all the money she stole. 250,000.00 is not even half of what she stole. Maybe we all should still a couple of millions, put it away in a over seas acct and do our 20 years with the hopes of getting out in 5 or 10 for go behavior. LOL,LOL,LOL!!!!!

Is there something in the water down in Sumter? This must be the third such case from a relatively small city.

And people wonder why there is so much stealing going on. If the system made people pay for their crime it MIGHT stop some of it. I am sure that she has more money than she needs, hidden away, to pay the 250,000. This is even crazier than the Kline deal. When is the system going to wake up and hold people accountable for there GREED?? I bet the girl that stole the 600,000 gets more time than Angie.
I am wondering WHEN OR IF they are going to auction off all of the stuff that was bought with the stolen money!! I'm sure that would be a HUGE auction. Only time will tell.

Totally agree with you on this one. The husband and family member had to have the knowledge of excessive money floating around. That is considered accessory to the fact. They need to held accountable too. ALL OF THEM..Just feel bad for her kids, and only the kids.

It's a shame people are so dishonest. If this women would have used her intellegents and directed them in an honest way she won't have to steal to be a millionaire she would have done so legally. She fooled her employeer, banks and auditors. She needs to repay what she stole plus do jail time. I feel sorry for her family and friends for the poor example she has shown them on how to live a life.

Sounds like she had fun for a few years. Too bad she got too outrageous with it.

I bet she gets the max sentence because it's a "white collar crime." Yet the guy in the news a few days ago who killed his sweet neighbor was out on the street after being convicted of armed robbery. Our justice system's priorities are amazing these days.

With what attorneys pay their overworked paralegals I am surprised this has not happened before - just wish she had gotten away with it!

So, just what did she pled guilty to... forgetting who she was, when she made up all those false bank accounts? No matter what terms you want to dress it up with, she is a crook! Sue me!!

DAH to HUM !
embezzling "quote" to steal or use for ones own purposes (money opr other property)which has been entrusted to as an employee. That was 7 million) from Sumter-based Pease Textile.
Steal "quote" To take (something not rightfully belonging to one) 7 Million from Sumter-based Pease Textile. How ever you read this. She took it upon herself to steal, embezelle what was not hers. Either way, she broke the law and now is paying for her greed! It is the law!
