In December 2007, three posts appeared on the Chocl8t Diaries about Karyn Hancock. First about her disappearance, then when she was found, and finally about what drove her to run and lie.
On yesterday Mrs Hancock was sentenced to four years in prison from stealing more than $600,000 from clients.
The 36-year old stood silent and emotionless as the judge sentenced her to the next four years in prison.
“We sort of have a policy in the office. If an attorney steals from clients they go to prison. That was our attitude towards this. So we think it’s an appropriate sentence,” Chris Anderson-prosecutor.
Before sentencing victims shared their stories how McConnell-Hancock forged checks, submitted false claims, and then used their money to pay back other clients. [SOURCE]
She will be eligible for parole in 180 days. Six months? WOW.
I think she is getting off easy if you ask me. She probably will not serve the entire sentence – probably less than 2 years. How is that justice for the victims?
What do you think? Is that a “light” sentence”?
