    I have to laugh at these close minded comments. First of all if any of you are able to READ, she had high credit card debt, not a gambling problem. The judge imposed to stay away from casinos as previous judges did in similar circumstances. Everyone always thinks , oh it’s the Casino’s fault. I am in no way condoning what she did but I think before rude and nasty comments are made, each of us should look in our own closets, none of us know what we will be faced with one day. Oh, and BTW there is really only one judge that counts in the end………….

    I was thinking the same thing, how does someone steal this much money and not do time?! And what, she will get welfare and food stamps while under house arrest?

    So she got a 53 thousand, interest free loan and six months of watching Real Housewives reruns? That’ll teach her!

    The logical next question would be ” If I walked into a bank and demanded 53 thousand dollars to be placed in a bag , without a firearm , received the money and walked out with it . Would I be getting 6 months house arrest ? I think not ! How about she receives 12 to 24 months in the big house . Get out and have 5 years probation and pay full restitution first before you pull the slots again ! This is a felony amount of stealing ! Not a misdemeanor offense ! A bunch of incompetent Judges . By the way . Get yourself a new Bluetooth device for your ear . You can afford it !
