Justice is being served. No need to be mean spirited.

Visitation is not allowed at this time - but if you would like to write her for encouragment.

Consult lasd.org for details

This has been a life-changing opportunity for many.

ok, i met this lady in jail. she claimed she was innocent the entire time, she said her husband was constantly trying to set her up. she did admit she has substance abuse problems; alcohol and cocaine.
she mentioned she was there for a psych evaluation, but she had been there for weeks and hadn't seen one doctor and was in GENERAL POPULATION, she had access to mail/visitors. in fact, she DID have contact with the 'outside' because she was complaining about all these people writing about her on the internet (hey, i was curious, i had to google her). her life in jail basically consisted of 20 hours locked down in a two man cell, a sack breakfast and lunch and one hot dinner. they get about 4 hours of time outside of the cells for phone calls, etc.

i AM confused about her sentencing, lasd.org says shes currently in prison now, CIW in chino. inmates in county jail do not go to prison unless they've already been sentenced, which is why im confused she has a court date on 10/14.

prison is much different from jail, she could be housed with 'lifers' who have nothing to lose! it's pretty obvious to me now that she is guilty and needs to serve her time. i do feel bad for her children and hope the entire family will recover from this.

The Polite Bandit took over 1000.00 from Murphy Ranch Little League and tried to have another board member take the blame. He reluctantly paid a check to the league for the missing money but that check bounced. Within a few weeks the whole mess blew up with him now in custody for robbing banks in La Mirada/Whittier and La Habra. If this guy can rob banks he can surely take money from a volunteer organization. The point is you must watch the money at all times and be accountable.

Anytime there are large amounts of money being raised i.e PTA and sports teams at local parks, there will be temptation. It is human nature that is why we need to hold strict accountablity to others and ourselves. Another area of concern is identity theft and too much information that employees of store merchants have access too. Credit card businesses should not be sending checks to households so freely through the mail. It is a crazy world we live!
