Mr. Albrecht, you have affronted the honor of my fair town. By the ancient laws of the Ohio hill peoples, I challenge you to an old-fashioned country duel. I will leave to you the choice of tractor type, firearm and brands of whiskey. I'll wager three good rhode island reds and a stout breedin' sow. Raise that if you dare.

I was going to be offended by those comments, but with our Hazzard County type good ole boy justice in this case, I guess we deserve it. Just goes to show: If you lie or steal from the gov, its a felony, if they lie or steal from you its just politics.

Shame on her for lying, cheating & stealing from Augusta Twp. The name is a pretty common name in those parts and it's a beautiful, rural area. She stole from people she KNEW! I'm very curious how she's going to pay back $24,000+ in 12 months! This is a very, very sad story. Greediness at it's finest.

How do I get the recorder's job in Augusta? If I steal, the chances are I won't get caught. If I do get caught, I get slapped on the wrist, pay it back, and move on. Sounds like a win win situation. I too am curious about how she's going to pay that money back. Who would employ her? She worked in insurance I think but don't really know for sure. That sounds like a good place to take your payment and then find out you don't have insurance. Wonder where the money went.

I can't understand why the Prosecutor would agreed to giving her a slap on the rist. I guess it's accepable to steal from the goverment and the Augusta people and walk away without punishment. It must be nice to live in a small town were you "hobnob" with people that can do you favors when you steal from the goverment! That's UNACCEPTABLE and a disgrace to the legal team that represented Augusta, this was and open and shut case with proof of guilt and she couldn't even get gail time. WHAT A JOKE1111

Apparently there are many things you do not understand. First is the English language, as you have massacred it in your comment. So it stands to reason that you would not be able to understand much at all. If you have a point to make, do it with some intelligence and competence. It would be a travesty of justice if you were called to jury duty. You would be required to prove intelligence of some sort. By the way, "gail" is spelled "Jail."

Only thing I can figure is they won't get the money back anytime soon if she is in jail.

You people have no idea. Even if the Prosecutor would have wanted jail time the Judge you elected would have never given it to her. This county keeps supporting a liberal Judge who does not feel jail is a answer to crime. Ask your Common Pleas Judge how many people have died of heroin overdose after he let them out on non cash bonds, instead of keeping them in jail until a suitable treatment program could have been ordered. This is just another day and the life in Carroll County. A DUI offender would have had to do three days on a first offense! Keep your crimes in Carroll County, good place to commit a felony and not a misdemeanor.

Historian-seems like you're taking sides with the guilty. Possibly you're connected to this person.
