Embezzling from Homeowners Associations in America is an epidemic. But when a federal prosecutor accepts a tiny plea bargain agreement from a chronic embezzler it stinks to high heavens.
Birmingham, Alabama… Realty company owner Jill Rouse Boothby admits to stealing more than 375,000 dollars from eleven condo associations she managed. She pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and faithfully promises she’ll pay back the hundreds of thousands of bucks she stole. Apparently, there’s not going to be any jail time.
I know U.S. Attorneys have a lot of violent criminals to deal with. But stealing from elderly people does an untold amount of damage to their lives. Any theft from old people should be considered a violent crime. But until law enforcement starts handing out some stiff punishments, these crimes will NEVER stop!
