Jennifer French and Darin French also stole money from me too. I consider it theft because at the time of my 'purchase' she knew they never had any intention of delivering the products. Prison is too good for them because they knowingly defrauded people of their hard earned cash, then reinvested it into other business & property. This is one case where Nevada business laws may need to be revisited to protect the individual rather than the businesses, it has been way too long in getting these people. We should get our money back plus interest on the money (they made money off our money) in addition to the pain and extra money we had to spend to get the appliances they were supposed to deliver.

Darin got sentenced to 12 yrs in fed prison in addition to the 3 years received for Maytag fraud. My only concern is for their 4 young daughters and hope there is some good family support for them..

I as well was personally affected as there were children that take the brunt of the punishment. Was informed of Darin's sentence but not Jennifer's. Do you know the result of her sentencing? I was a juror on this case in Feb. 2011

Jennifer will not be sentenced until Feb.2012. Darin received 14 years and must serve at least 12 of those.
If you were a juror,can you tell me why you convicted her? What was it that convinced you that she was involved in it too? I am her sister.I am just curious wondering why. Thanks,Liz Helms

My post above is in reference to the girlfriend,not my sister. My sister was given the same option,tell on Darin and she would not receive jail time and unfornunately,she chose to stand by him.
The FBI wanted Darin. As far as Jen,all i can say is the punishment for her seems to reflect the extent of her involvement. He received 12- or more years.She received 2 and its on appeal right now. If the judge thought she was that guilty,don't you think she'd be right where he is?
In all of this mess,i care about my 4 little nieces and how no one thought of the harm to them from all of this. We all make mistakes,some bigger then others.

I agree about the little girls, it's heartbreaking. But the simple fact is they should have thought about the fact that they would eventually get caught. Everyone does. Wether she told on him or not it shouldn't change the fact that she did know what was going on and that is a crime also.

I'm hoping that you can still read these and you get an alert about what a home wrecking bitch your sister is. She thinks that she is a Chistian woman and that she is so perfect now after everything that she has done to people. Now she is having an affair with a 74 year old man. Probably because she thinks that she is going to get some type of money from him once he passes away. I am sure that is why she is doing what she is doing. After all she was a stripper in Las Vegas when she met Darin. Wow, what a wonderful example she is setting for her little girls. Those girls would be better off in foster care than being raised by a manipulative bitch. Or better yet with their grandparents.
