If the judge doesn't want to send her to jail then its time to remove this worthless judge from the bench.

I'm guessing she's not going to jail, because it would be pretty hard to prove that Yeater didn't give her verbal permission at the time, to use the money. So they did the plea agreement. Course I could be wrong and the judge could just be soft.

The possibility of verbal permission is one thing, but forgery is another. Weak judges are a principal cause of our nation's troubles!

What a Crock of S**T!?!?! Way to slap this woman on the wrists and let her get away with what she has done. Being on house arrest/probation will not stop her from stealing again. They left the door wide open for her to repeat the same crime. And with a piss poor sentence like that, why wouldn't she repeat?!?!

What is the point in having a justice system if there is no justice? She steals $30,000 from someone and basically just gets to sit at home and behave herself. Wow what a lucky woman.

If her POA was 100% legel she did nothing wrong in the eyes of the law the person signed over POA whitch gives her the right to write checks and sign them I do not think it is right what she did

if you have a POA that is VALID, there is technically NOTHING you can do about her writting checks, because the POA'S state that they can sign your name use your bank accounts etc, so legally the lady didn't have herself covered. VERY wrong for her to do this to a "Friend" but she is also lucky they even pressed charges! Sad..gotta watch who you give a POA to, that's for sure!!

I believe that a POA only gives a person the power to do what the signer of the POA would normally do for themselves, if able. It does not give them unlimited power to transfer the signers assets for their OWN PERSONAL USE without the signers authority.

I'm thinking this judge got his degree online through one of those "diploma mills." I'm not knocking online degrees, but some places apparently sell degrees/diplomas.

I don't know, I'm beginning to think that only angry and vengeful people should be given jobs as judges. That way criminals aren't treated like victims and let off easy all the time. Better yet, if someone is obviously guilty of a crime, send them to a third world country for "justice" and we'll see if they return with their limbs intact
