~This is simply awful. There is no excuse to steal~ever...Behind in your bills~yeah sure~get a night time job...but stealing is not the answer. I am so curious of what the penalty is going to be....Probably probation, perhaps a harsher slap on the wrist, like two years without a finding, or some such nonsense...while they go after the mom, jailed her, who put her child in a better school. The system is not really set up to punish the guilty~you see, it's all about who you know,what kind of money you have. And if this woman is guilty we know she's got money. But we'll see~maybe she'll get what she deserves!
