I know that when I was sick and we had money problems, we didn’t go out spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on luxuries…. Raina April 26, 2005 If you think that’s bad, check out this website of a panhander where you can go to pay off her overdue direct TV bill. Rob Hackney April 26, 2005 Packers eh. Should be locked up just for her POOR TASTE. dodgeman April 26, 2005 How does contributing the tickets to a charity reimburse the accounts she stole from? I’m of the opinion that if a thief is convicted, part of the sentence should be restitution. I know that leads to a paupers prison scenario, but as a card-carrying republican I firmly believe that’s where paupers belong. Now excuse me while I go look up pauper in the dictionary. wyguy April 26, 2005 Hey! Packers tickets are a necessity! Food, clothing and shelter are not! Timmer April 26, 2005 What makes anyone think the husband is going to give up his seat? None of you have family in Wisconsin do you? McGehee April 26, 2005 He doesn’t have to give up his seat. He’ll just have to find a way to sneak into the stadium without a ticket. slim999 April 26, 2005 My bet: The husband will have her in that jail quicker’d you can say: “Wide right, on 3. BREAK.” Darleen April 26, 2005 dodgeman The story isn’t clear, but I believe the tickets in lieu of jail time is only part of the sentence. Restitution is usually a separate term. It’s similar to people doing X-hours of community service in lieu of jail and they still have their fine, probation and any restitution. I have to give kudos to the judge, this is the sting that will drive home embezzling for “necessities” actually is gonna cost you what you hold dear. flaime April 26, 2005 Packers tickets are necessities! If you live in Green Bay, anyway. Scott Ferguson April 26, 2005 Prison or Packers: The former leads to the latter. Judge: “Thirty days, or thirty dollars.” Bum: “Your honor, I’ll take the thirty dollars!” Rodney Dill April 26, 2005 Prison, definitely. I’d take 30+ years to get season tickets back again. Last season they had a piece on someone that had just gotten season tickets, that had been added to the list in 1970. wavemaker April 26, 2005 I think the judge let her off easy! She stole workers’ money for crissakes! It’s a serious federal offense to steal union dues money. Is this one of the “grave instances of judicial activism” I’ve been hearing about? TallDave April 26, 2005 As a former Wisconsite, I guarantee she is going to jail. Sean Hackbarth April 26, 2005 She better make up her mind soon. Training camp isn’t that far away. McCain April 26, 2005 She would have to pry those tickets from her husband’s cold dead hands. What red-blooded American male could pass up getting away from the wife, hanging out with a buddy, drinking for hours, and cursing all game without fear of scolding? Sure, dinner would be a problem, but that’s why they invented pizza. And since she can watch on TV from jail, it’s a total win-win for all concerned parties. fatman April 27, 2005 can you imagine? all this fuss over Packers tickets. now, if they were Steelers tickets… Jim in Texas April 27, 2005 She stole from the union….I can’t seem to get beyond that concept. She stole from the union. Isn’t that like stealing silverware from the Titanic?? McGehee April 27, 2005 Depends — before it sank, or after? Jim in Texas April 27, 2005 The Titanic SANK!??!? THAT explains why my Grandmother’s first fiancee never showed up for the wedding. I gotta get a radio or newspaper subscription or something.
