I am the neice of the "blind man" that Lyneese stole his identity, broke in his home, and stole his sense of security forever. My uncle was friends with her for years, worked with her and loaned her money(which she never repaid), and she said she is changed now and won't do it again. Seriously...I doubt it. A skunk never looses it strips, she obviously don't like jail. I am just disappointed in our court system and the judge. You are just turning her loose to trick others into believing she is cured.
All I can say is that the victim, my uncle will never be the same. The courts are too busy taking care of the criminals and not the victims. I am very disappointed with the judge and the court. The Dowagiac Police Dept. and the Prosecuting Attorney were great, the judge however let the criminal come out ahead, what happened to victims rights?
