Let's look at Flagler County Florida judges records. They have a case Cynthia Doran (alias Gilbert, alias Flattery, look at all three) and her daughter Ashley Gilbert (22 yrs old). Together they have over 70 charges against them in Flagler County. Cynthia (the mom) did a Felony by beating up a security officer in Dec.2010 and then beat up a person (misdemeanor) in March 2011. The daughter did Petti Larceny in March 2011 and Grand Larceny in April 2011.This is not the first time for each of them.......
Cynthia Doran (under Gilbert)received over $120,000.00 cash in 2002 and her home is in foreclosure since 2010. Was it spent on drugs?
Was it spent on cruiselines?The Flagler judges give them a slap on the hand even though these two have no respect for the law....and is the public safe from them? Compassion is one thing but this is unreal.

Considering she had the option to appeal her sentence but decided to run rather to do so, I think the sentence was appropriate.

She has been granted refugee status in Canada and is free to seek citizenship there.
