  8. so many criminals on the streets. this is just BS. she paid the tax and still go prison SMH.

  9. she paid what she owed. madox didn’t.

  10. What’s sad is your ignorance of her crime. She intentionally stole $1.8M from all of us…you talk about “criminals on the streets” who what…steal your purse for $30…or snatch your iPhone for $200…and you want them in jail, but instead someone who took $1.8M from your you and your country is not worthy of being punished? Why…because “she paid the tax”, that’s exactly like saying we shouldn’t punish any bank robbers as long as they give them money back if they get caught. What’s BS is your ignorance, and the fact that she only got 3 months.
