Judge Rejects Plea Agreement For City Councilman In $304K Embezzlment Case

A judge on Friday rejected a plea deal reached between prosecutors and a former Glendale councilman accused of embezzling more than $304,000, calling the agreement a "slap on the wrist" for someone in a position of public trust.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus said former Councilman John Drayman should go to jail if found guilty of the embezzlement, perjury and tax fraud charges, rejecting a deal that would have exchanged a guilty plea for community service and restitution.
Drayman is now scheduled to begin his criminal trial in November...

Finally--a judge who understands the danger these criminals pose to businesses and society. Wish we had more of them. Embezzlement is not a trivial crime.
