Scranton Woman Sentenced After Pleading Guilty to Theft Charges

SCRANTON, Pa. — A woman was sentenced Wednesday in Scranton after pleading guilty to theft.

Kelly Mattern, 39, was sentenced to six to 23 months in jail.

Mattern was charged after police say she forged checks while working as an office assistant for a lawyer in Scranton.

Officials say Mattern stole nearly $150,000 from the office in Lackawanna County.

    Why aren’t authorities restricting what these lawyers can charge in the first place? The amounts of money some of them charge if you win a lawsuit of any kind are obscene. Then again so are the amounts that the lawyers this city keeps hiring. But that just means the taxpayers have to pay more money in taxes next year to make up for Dewey, Cheatem N Howe’s (all credit to the 3 Stooges) exorbitant fee schedule.
