The prisons are filled with people who were never able to adjust to living with other people without violence as a result of horrific abuse they suffered as children, which the other grownups around them ignored. I do hope Tracy Lynn Saleido gets to know them well.

Correction: Tracy Lynn Salcido. If you run across a Tracy Lynn Saleido, that is the wrong one, girls. Leave her alone and keep looking.

Wow is right that is crazy stuff. I work for a drug treatment facility and I could not even think about taking money from these people who self-disclose their information to me. That is just sick and wrong. I hope the guilt eats her up inside the prison walls......

I knew Tracy and let me tell you she sure lived well and loved showing off. I can't help but feel sorry for her because she really tried to impress and keep up with some "so called" friends. I can't help but feel that her husband was really the mastermind behind this.

I am very close to Tracy and know that Dave (and Art?) had to have been culpable in this and have demonstrated criminal actions before. What can we do to get him (them?) behind bars?

Her husband (and father-in-law) were behind this, no doubt about it. Plus he dragged her through several years of drug abuse. He is the scum of the earth. We should all collaborate and get a petition going NOW as her trial comes up on Friday, Feb 1st. We need to get a petition to the DA pronto!!!

Alot of husbands and fathers would have given up a long time ago. This so-called mastermind has done nothing but be the backbone of his family in their hard times. As if working and being both mother and father to the kids wasn't hard enough he also has to deal with seeing idiotic comments like many of these from outsiders with personal vendettas. Leave the man alone!

DAVID HAS NO BACKBONE, THAT'S WHY TRACY IS IN JAIL AND NOT HIM. HIS MOM AND DAD SUPPORT HIM ARE RAISING HIS CHILDREN. I AM CONFIDENT DAVE WILL GET HIS.

Don’t believe everything you hear. Of course only the bad things will be said vacations, Shopping Sprees, Oh and the Treatments in Glen Ivy’s, what amazes me is they won’t say how she did help a lot of the people struggling and who are we to judge? God knows we are not perfect. So if she happens to come out she would have done her time. If the husband is behind it? Truth eventually comes out! So for the time being she is doing her time behind walls and believe me she is a good person and not a coward im sure she had many opportunities’ to run but she did not. She is taking her punishment and doing as much time as god wants her too. I know personally if I knew I might be facing half a life term and I had an opportunity to run god only knows what I would do. I truly believe this woman is taking her consequences if indeed everything said is true. But at this point I also think of her kids and how everyone is judging how wrong it was to take that money but yet every one who wants her to go to prison for a long time don’t realize that we are taking a mother away from those kids. I personally think Tracy will come out of this and definitely learn from this.

I was in jail with Tracy and let me tell you something, I may not know everything about her past but that is a truly remarkable woman who cares deeply about her family. I will not go into the personal stuff that was shared between us, but I applaud her and Dave for what they are trying to do to take care of the kids. We make mistakes, some much bigger than others, but as the saying goes, there is only one judge and that is God and he is watching out for her and her family. Keep the faith Tracy I am thinking about you.

I also know Tracy and Dave and I honestly can't believe what I am hearing. Tracy is not as innocent as you all seem to think. At one point I was friends with these people and it was the worst mistake of my life. She may have found a heart now that she is rotten behind bars, but I can guarntee you she didn't have one before this.
I will not defend anyone who can steal from abused and neglected children. However, I do feel sorry for her boys and wish them the best.
