    I will say this much, when you take a job of this magnitude your responsabilities, become great. You are suppose to handle this job professonally,taking money is a big risk, and taking 51,000 Dollars is taking a risk, she put herself in this situation and I don't know her situation but I do know this she just made it worst.

    As I said before I was not judging her! and who are you to tell me who I'm judging? And for you to add to her problem by putting her business out you just letting everybody know what she is capable of doing. "Me" she has to accept her responsibility for her actions. This information is public information. Check out www.aoc.state and see who has to go to court for whatever reasons and I bet her name will show up. Now what do you think the judge is going to say?

    yes...you were judging her, when you called her greedy. and i don't know her personnally, but i do know her situation. i don't agree with what she did. i think it was wrong, and she will pay for it. unfortunately, she is in a worse spot than she was before. i would just hate it, if i was in her spot... could say that it would go threw my head to do the same thing. i just know that i would never be able to do it.

    I'm not judging her however it's evident that she stole from her job. Just because you know this lady don't make her innocent. If she was that desperate as you say, she should've ask you for the money and not steal from others. This is just going to cost her that much more to pay. So, Im not judging!

    please do not judge her..it is not your place. i do not agree with stealing, but sometimes desperate people do desperate things...it doesn't make it right, but i know she is not greedy. you don't know the whole story and the reason behind it...plus the fact that she was gradually bringing it back. to tina and her family..i am so sorry that you were driven to the extreme, glad that you realized it was not worth it and was trying to fix it..and pray that your problems get better soon.
