    "Not judging, just stating facts."

    What facts are these??? I've known her 26 yrs and the only facts you know are that she was accused and thats it. You obviously have a grudge or strong feelings against her. Get a life and leave innocent people alone.

    I hope for her children's sake she did not do this....

    Obviously someone toke money from the company and the question that always comes to me in those cases "Was it really worth your freedom and eliminating all other career opportunities?"

    What did she do with the money? How did she spend it?

    I know this woman, she is an upstanding citizen, very well educated, and a devoted single mother. She is being ACCUSED of this heinous crime. Wait til ALL the facts come out before you're so quick to judge. She has never been in any kind of trouble whatsoever.

    True, but times are hard and a good citizen may resort to doing things they would not normally do. She is not above the law and may she get 15-20 years in prison for stealing. She knew better and the evidence will prove she did it. Not judging, just stating facts.

    LOL!..Did you forget what website you're on?

    I once quit a job because I was pretty sure that another employee was embezzling. Since the employee doing the stealing was a relative of the owner, I knew that they would suspect the unrelated employees first. Since accusation is as good as conviction in NC, I knew I didn't want to be there when it happened. Maybe this woman stole; maybe she didn't. All we know now is that she has been accused.

    I don't understand how they think that kind of money would go unmissed. Eventually, it will be noticed.
