Now why am I not surprised. It will never go to court. Beth's parents will bail her out like they always have. She's never had to account for anything in her life.

Imagine that! Does anyone want to place bets that NOTHING happens to them? Go to Walmart and shoplift some Chapstick and you will be in court tomorrow. Commit a felony by ripping someone off for more than $200k and you will be taken down to the local car dealership to buy you a new car. Psht! Figures!

Of course, They are INNOCENT until proven guilty.

I will bet with you. Probably nothing will happen except maybe a slap on the wrist. I could never get away with anything like this. I am sure Beth is going to say "I didn't know anything" Even though my husband didn't have a job and a mega huge houseboat. If they don't account for it in court they will have to account to God.
