Holy Smokes!

So this woman embezzled $10M over six years. She was the bookkeeper for a large cabinet making company, and her husband was a cabinet installer. What did she spend the money on? Shoes, clothes, purses, and remodeling a bathroom into a walk-in closet to hold all her loot that was complete with a big TV, among other things. She did it simply by paying her personal bills with company funds! So she obviously wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

And now that it's been uncovered and she's busted, supposedly her husband is "not suspected in any crime." Say what? A bookkeeper and cabinet installer are living large on ten million spare dollars over six years and he had no idea something might be fishy? He can't be considered, oh, an accomplice? Or at least an accessory? No, not a purse, a criminal accessory. Seriously? Sounds like a district attorney needs a spine here. Or some education. Or something. But this guy should go to jail and should most definitely NOT collect $200.
