I think she should of had the book thrown at her.She should have gotten at least 10 years.I Don't believe the lame story about her dad.
She is not getting any sympathy from me.I think Most of those women who work at the court house in Circleville are rude and think they are better than you. Heard she really bought a new house in Jefferson Addition beside Logan Elm Village and a big diamond ring and a vacation with the over $20,000.00 she stole from real estate tax payers in Circleville. I think she knew what she was doing.Makes me wonder how long this has really been going on. What a disgrace.

She can't blame her poor Dad. She did it all herself. I think three years is really lame, probably the least they could give her. So interesting as to how they came up with three years.

Sounds like you've "heard" a lot, but know very little.

They came up with 3 years because that's the max sentence for a first time offender for that type of crime. SO before you run your mouth why don't you actually figure out what you're talking about. She got the max, not the least.

I think the people on hear defending the thief should be sued for harassment and put in jail along with their friend thief Gale. The truth will hurt. If I had friends like you I would be utterly ashamed. You call the people giving their opinions some horrible names and you threaten them. I think the Circleville citizens should get rid of all the dishonest people working in the court house, the sheriffs department , dirty lawyers, and most local government. All of them should be forced to take drug and alcohol tests.We need to clean Circleville up.

Gale Fouch stole that money to give her daughter a wedding present. Hopefully her family does the right thing and stops diverting attention and pays the money back.

Seems like i've heard that one before. looks like alot of people agree with me EXP. now i feel like im on an episode of groundhog day or something... Do yourself a favor and stop sticking up for that thief Fouch and her scumbag family. Her fam took money from her and is just as guilty as she is. Hopefully they get indicted like she did and are forced to answer some questions instead of sending out smoke screens and quoting jesus and asking for bullsh.i.t prayer.

To the friends and family of this individual. You can take topix to court and they will pursue the people who slandered throughout these post. It has been done. Google it for more info. Cyber bullying is a big deal and they will have to take action.

Gale fouch is the only one hurting her fanily. Fouch brought her family into this the first time she stole the money. No one else brought them into this but Gale Fouch. She is making them suffer ,no one else.

Don't you think Ellery Ellick, Gale's boss should have seen that Gale was stealing money. Gale had been stealing it since October and November of 2011.That's like 8 to 10 months. That is a long time to be stealing money from tax payers. That is very unprofessional if Treasurer Ellick never even noticed until August 2012 when a tax payer complaining about his receipt brought to his attention. Very unprofessional. Pretty scary too in my opinion.
