Not sure but shouldn't she be left alone. She does not need a new tread started so people can bash her.

If you read my comment - there was no bashing at all. I do have class, it was just a simple question.

Former PTA president sentenced to 3 years for identity theft, fraud
By Ruby Gonzales, Staff Writer

NORWALK - A former La Pluma Elementary School PTA president was sentenced Tuesday to three years in state prison for stealing people's personal information to open credit cards and for depositing her neighbors' checks into her account.
Her 57 victims included her next-door neighbors, her dead mother, a 6-year-old girl and a single mother.
Norwalk Superior Court Judge Philip Hickok doubted Kelly Mahaffey will complete probation. He mentioned the updated probation report which stated her egregious behavior won't likely cease and recommended prison time.
Hickok explained why he sentenced the 44-year-old La Mirada woman to three years.
"There is a high degree of sophistication in the crimes. Another factor is the high amount of money. The defendant continues to deny the crimes and the defendant has shown no remorse," Hickok said.
He also ordered her to pay restitution of about $7,000, pay court fines and give a DNA sample. He denied the defense request to place Mahaffey on probation. When she gets out of prison, she will be on parole for three years.
Mahaffey was convicted in June of nine counts of identity theft, grand theft of a $4,650 check, possession of methamphetamine, multiple identifying information theft, theft of access card information with intent to use it fraudulently, grand theft of lost property, second-degree commercial burglary and forgery.
Deputies found two notebooks containing the personal information of 57 people during a search of Mahaffey's house.
"I'm very pleased he gave her state prison," said Deputy District Attorney Lalit Kundani . He called her a poster child for identity theft.
He also said Mahaffey used her dead mother's credit card to buy more than $250 worth of pornography and sexual toys at a Brea store.
Mahaffey appeared at her Tuesday sentencing wearing a pale green jail jumpsuit with her hands cuffed behind her back. She didn't say anything. She had been in custody for 100 days while state prison officials evaluated her to see if she ought to be in prison or get probation.
Kundani had earlier asked Mahaffey be given six years.
"The people do acknowledge she has two children and has done productive things with her life," he said.
"The problem is when you defraud 57 victims across the country, defraud them for more than $30,000 and pit them against each other ... What is really the depths of the crime here?"
Kundani said he only presented one-fourth of the 57 victims at the trial. He said she still doesn't accept responsibility for her crimes.
Simon Aval, Mahaffey's lawyer, asked Hickok to suspend the six-year sentence asked by the prosecution. He wanted her placed on probation and allowed to attend a rehab program.

And yes, we do personally know her. I feel extremely sorry for the kids. It kills me! But she sure wasn't too worried about them was she!

and its not bashing, its just the simple truth, and it hurts, doesnt it!

It is our business, because if she gets out, those of us who are her neighbors have to get a lock on their mailbox, and be worried about the deputies raiding the wrong house looking for meth.

She should just go rot in the desert. For those of you willing to forgive and forget, allow her in your house, to have dinner with your family, or work for you... sorry, no ex-cons in my house or business. I don't trust them. My philosophy of the penal system is for punishment and retribution. Rehabilitation doesn't work in the CA Dept of Corrections. Now she's had three years to become a better thief through association.

And yes, I do feel sorry for the kids. She didn't care about them then though, just was selfishly thinking about herself. Hoepfully, they've been able to find proper role models. Too bad it couldn't be their parent.

But you are right. Doesn't need a new thread for bashing this one person. There are plenty of other people who are worse criminals than her who we could identify and make people aware. Fortunately with them, when we go about our daily activities, we can tell who they are as the scum bag wolves usually don't cloak themselves in sheeps' clothing.

That's the difference.

Im sure the people of IRVINE will care!!! I just heard from one of her FRIENDS that she is living there now.

My neice was given 16 months.(second felony - plea bargain)

She is serving time with CCWF (Chowchilla - Federal)

In reality my neice's actual time locked up is just over 8 months counting the time in Lynwood. About just over 50%

IF ... this holds true for Kelly
3 years = 1070 days
50%= 535 days
100 days time served = 435 days
435 days = 14 months

So...about mid January 2010...if she is good.

The RESTITUTION follows her forever until it is paid off. 55% of all money earned in prison at wages of 45cents to 90cents an hour and any deposits to her prison canteen account from outside sources.

The woman is duly and thoroughly punished.
