A maid who stole $270K is probably going to get a longer sentence then the Banker she stole jewelery from that cost $593 million in damage.

It will be interesting to watch the outcome. More interesting is how this its getting such little attention. I guess they don't want to bring to attention how the bankers influence the laws in this country.

Maid who stole more than $270,000 in jewelry sentenced to 12 years in prison:

Former Orion CEO Jerry Williams admits in court illegal banking scheme :


It cost the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation more than $593 million

He faces up to 15 years in prison — five years and a $250,000 fine on each count — supervised release after prison and restitution, up to twice the gain caused by his offense or twice the loss, whichever is larger. He can never work in banking again.

12 years for stealing jewelry?


Time doesn't fit the crime at all.

12 years is such a long time for stealing some shiny rocks regardless of its value. What a waste of life...

She could have lied and said that she didn't do it. I mean, really, who wouldn't believe that the husband would give his wife fake jewelry or that he replaced real diamonds with CZs?

This story is ironic.

S & F. The apathy and disinterest in this topic is evidence of why were are so easily manipulated. We are so easily distracted from the hard truth with more sensational stories.

Fact is although we all are created equally and presumably obey the same laws so that it APPEARS fair...
THE PENALTY RECEIVED FOR BREAKING THE LAW IS DIFFERENT FOR THE RICH.

Wealthy receive a slap on the hands or they are asked to move so people do not remember them and their crime while the poor are thrown in jails owned and maintained by those same wealthy.

Wait a minute. Does this sound odd to anyone else?


Among her victims was Heather Williams, the wife of failed Orion Bank president Jerry Williams. She discovered the thefts when she went to Bigham Jewelers in Naples to reset a diamond that fell off her 9.45 carat bracelet and learned the $69,000 bracelet was now encrusted with nine cubic zirconia.

The fakes also were found in her 5½-carat diamond solitaire engagement ring, her 4.94 carat diamond stud earrings and her Oyster Rolex watch. Of the five known victims, including her live-in nanny, Williams lost the most, jewelry once appraised at $193,450.


So, this cleaning lady had the time and skill to replace diamonds in a bracelet, engagement ring, two earrings and a watch. If she can do that, why was she working as a cleaning lady? And where would she sell more than a dozen loose diamonds?


Other people said they found their jewelry at pawn shops, which makes more sense. This story sounds a little fishy to me.

It represents the labor value behind those rocks and the act itself. Criminals are Criminals.
