She stole 186 large and her bond is 100 large. Hmmm, wonder how she might make bail? She still would turn a profit.

Bet BP hires her.

This is absolutely pathetic! I am not Christian, but I do respect the religious sanctuaries of those who differ from my own. This "person" should be made an example of in the media as well as the court system!

I agree and I am a christian. Even in the teachings the more you know the more you will be held to. I am tired of the forgive and forget. That money was a gift to further a cause, fix the building , help the less fortunate alots of peoples suffering could have been eased with that money.

$186,000 is not an easy take out of any church. How did she get by long enough to get that much out. A trusting bookkeeper, no doubt.

Mistake? no what she did was commit a crime. Are you saying that because she stole from her church she should be given a free walk? I am far from perfect and I'm not sitting in judgment of anyone but if she is guilty she should do the time.
