I wonder what Fred Hemmings wife will get as a repeat offender if convicted? Or will her story be hushed up?

Being fined the amount she stole is a bit silly, since these fines are never collected. Maybe we need a new form of embezzler's prison where you stay inside on bread and water until your family finds a way to buy your freedom.

that's still no excuse to take advantage of the elderly. if you can't make a go at the rate of pay, then they should look for a better paying job, not ripoff someone you're entrusted to care for.

i don't know how people like this can sleep with a clear conscience at night.

i just don't understand some people. How can she go to working knowing that she has been stealing for this old man. Shame on you. Just think what if someone did this to one of your parents. How would you feel about that. People should always think twice before they do anything so stupid as this. For sure she won't be able to find another job. Oh well.

What difference does it make when the State's (DOE) Department Of Education administration executives, family members, former executives, corrupt union officials, past and current politicians and their cronies engage in embezzling $600 million dollars each year from an annual $2.3 Billion dollar budget for over 15 years and counting...yet no one has been prosecuted?

Maybe if you only steal from a bank, then it will make a difference, but stealing someone's else educational future is "exceptable"? Besides, most if not all of these DOE executives send their children to private schools any way, so it's okay to milk the system because it does not affect them personally.

Easy, all they do is close their eyes and they go right to sleep. And this is only one case where someone was caught. Imagine how many more of these folks are still out there just laying low for awhile.

Need more judges that will set a sentence to a level that will actually deter someone else from doing the same thing. I wish every thief had to serve time and pay double in restitution. We need hard labor prisons or why not instead of sending them to the mainland we contract our prison services to Iraq.

John Kamaka you're right, they should let her off because there are bigger crimes committed in our state. I'm glad someone's thinking rationally.

you're comparing apples to oranges, sir. and was 'exceptable' a play on words? if not, the correct spelling is 'acceptable.'

Do you work for the DOE and only look for spelling errors and not comment on the main body of the post?
