    Wait a minute….this female was arrested and convicted for stealing $11,000 from the Wayne County tax bureau. So this lumber company hires her after the conviction. And puts her in a position where she’s dealing with money. Hmmm…the lumber company has part of the blame here. You mean they couldn’t find someone without a felony to handle their money? She’s the only one they could find?
