What does describing her as a "mom" have anything to do with the case? You never hear a man described as a "dad" of four in the headline and first sentence is cases like this. Are we supposed now to feel sympathy now. Is this part of her defense...she had emotional issues........so sexist!

Obviously it was a misprint. She is not a mother. She is a credent breeder.

What happened to the separation of Church and State? She ripped-off the Church let the parishioners deal with her.

Another church going thief arrested, go figure. I guess she needed the money to pay her American Express and Macy's bills.

Funny, the govt is burning us for billions everyday, puting the same screws to the tax payers but they are NOT considered criminals.
Not saying what she did was right, but how about we go after the big fish like CONGRESS first and then work our way down. Seems like rational order.

O'ya forgot to mention, since these so called Churches are tax exempt in every way, shape and form. Can we get them to reimburse the tax payers for the $$$$ the sheriff dept had to spend to stop this lady. Seems like a simple internal checks and balance system or routine audit would have taken care of it long ago.

Good point! Where was the oversight? Could have prevented this woman from giving in to temptation too. Maybe she needed money to get her children all those things they really don't need. Lot more behind this than just a theft.
