I currently read online that this woman paid her restitution in full. We all know all government wants is money and to keep people out of jail because it is much cheaper. This very young lady will get a light sentence and commit another crime of fraud. How exactly did she come up with that kind of money so very quickly? She had some help with the scheme she was trying to pull. Anybody she knew that had that kind of money to bail her out should have been the one who gave her the money in the first place so she would not be in the situation at all.
