She raised her own salary? Wow that sounds more like the Franklin County Veterans Service Commision than a Doctors office. We were told we would get the results of the auditors findings in the spring. Now it's going on summer and the findings still aren't public. Why?

Googling her name shows what nerve this gal has. Evidently she had already engaged in this sort of stuff before the medical office job and seems to be in real estate now. You can't slow her down, evidently.

What this article fails to reveal is that charges were not prosecuted and that a restitution amount has not been established.The information given is the same informationt that was given in July 2009 when this case orginally was indicted. No one but the person knows the reasons these things happened. In addition, a guilty plea to theft does not mean that they stole what was accused. We all want money to be paid back to victims yet we shun someone for gaining and retaining employment.
So thats her game

After these charges she seems to fit the mold of a politician--you run girl--all the way to those secret bank accounts. Yee-haw.

I cant believe that your going to pull the "two sides of the story" card out. What "side" could possibly justify theft? If you need more money get another job! Stealing is wrong point blank!

This is just one example of the kind of money these doctors rake in, they didn't even miss all of the THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS this thief was taking!
These guys are ripping-off every patient that walks through their doors, so, what's wrong with them getting ripped-off??? Just too bad she got caught!

Scioto County SE Ohio's Portsmouth's future, we are developing "suites of doctors" away from SOMC, Kinney's Lane zoning case? New creative ways to fleece the people for oneself.

Our police blotter and therefore the front page, above the fold, PDT's print will increase, but will their advertisers and subscribers hold out? We shall see.

Typical Obama supporter here figuring that after passage of ObamaCare there wouldn't much left to steal, so she got the getting while the getting was good. This fits too with the filthy progressives in that doctors are rich and that therefore deserve to be stolen from.

You may want your doctor making minimum wage but I'm ok for paying someone well if they are treating or operating on me. If being a doctor is so profitable Mr. Ramsey, I would encourage you to go to spend a quarter of a million on med school and work for practically free during 3 years of residency. Or just pay extra money, as I am ok doing, as you realize it's not an auto mechanic you're visiting.

Mr Ramsey, I am inclined to ask the question if you have any idea of what you are talking about?! First of all, I will say that I am not a physician, however I am a nurse and am more familiar than you obviously are in regards to health care.
So that you may be better educated and not look completely ignorant the next time you open your mouth (or type) I have a few FACTS for you.

1. Doctors DO NOT get paid the amount they bill for. When you see an EOB from your insurance it will tell you how much your Doctor billed for a service. I encourage you to look on there and see exactly how much it is that your doctor gets paid vs. how much they bill for.

2. Your insurance company probably charges you more in a year than what they pay in your medical expenses. Figure out how much your premium is, then look at how much your insurance has acctualy paid and 90% of the time, you paid more to the insurance than they paid to ANY medical provider.

3. Physicians do not start making a profit for AT LEAST 5 years after they are done with Residency. This is due to the amount of student loans etc. that is still owed once they are finished with school.

In addition to these facts I would like to remind you of somethings. If a doctor runs a practice, the money they make pays the employees. That means me. Therefore that is even more money that they "make" that they don't recieve. I would also like to point out the fact that the doctors are there to take care of medical needs. They hire a business administrator to take care of the billing/payroll etc. It only makes sense that they would not know that things were not getting paid if they never see the bills.

When is Kelley Rabalais going to go to jail? This case has been going on for over a year and in the mean time she is continueing to steal. She has been going to Blue Jacket and OSU games and sitting in expensive seats! She should be in JAIL!

All I can say is that I personally dealt with her for a few months after her conviction, and was not aware of how serious it was until recently, when I googled her case. There were some concerns about her with her behaviors in regards to money, I think there are some real problems that are not going to go away. it will be interesting to see what her sentencing will bring.
What worries me is that she is not upfront about her issues and manages to get into good paying jobs, only to repeat the same patterns of behavior, not all of which are about money.

Kelly is finally suppose to get sentenced on Dec. 14th. I just hope she goes to prison for a while, she needs to learn that this kind of behavior is not tolerated. She even had her family (sister and mother), and a client write a letter to Judge saying how much she has changed in the last 2 years. WHAT! My friends and I dealt with her earlier this year and she has not changed.

What? She was trying to scam me and my friends. So you should understand why we are all interested in this case. She says she has changed and we all know this is not true. She is a very sick person.

- I have to agree with you and she is VERY convincing. Even people who are aware of what she did will still be swayed by her lies and her smooth demeanor. Very troubling, I hope she gets her just desserts. I am not sure why this case has been delayed. Unfortunately once her employers find out about her and her sneaky tactics it is too late.

It scares me that she got off so easily....... She will do it again before not too long, a good attorney got her off.
