1 Woman, 2 (or more) Companies, over $1.5 million

So back in March, I came across this article from the KC Star detailing a woman's theft of $300k from the company she worked/ managed payroll for.

http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article66199102.html

Most of the money, per the article, went to trips and gambling (I'm going to guess trips to gamble myself).  

Being both a Finance and Accounting dork and a writer naturally I saved the article (thank you Pinterest's ability to let me electronically horde)

Then today this dandy bit hit.  Same woman.  Previous employer.  $1.2 million from them doing the same thing.  Oh, and a bit of identity theft.  

http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article79582592.html

She apparently started this 'habit' years early when she forged checks at a retirement community (which is what John Knox Village is).  She pled guilty of that crime.  This, of course, makes me wonder about the accuracy of vetting employees in some companies.

Yes, I've saved the second article as well.

Wow. Someone who has pled guilty to embezzling over $3000 should not be hired for a job that  gives her access to over one million dollars. Even if they knew her record and believed she was a recovering gambling addict, they should have had mulitiple safeguards in place to keep an eye on her. I'm no accountant, but YIKES!

      How old are Shalom and Justin’s kids?  I can’t imagine leaving my kids when their other parent is dying.  The poor daughter who was down with him.  It just doesn’t seem like they are thinking about the kids, especially if the kids are too young to understand.  I don’t image Mike and Debi being support for the kids emotionally during this.  I’m sure Shalom is torn and she was raised essentially being taught husband is above all.  Someone in those kids lives are hopefully there to hold them.

      I just think of a first grade class I subbed for this year with Aiden, Kayden, Grayden, and Zayden.

      was Braden absent?

      Ok, I am not going to say I haven't read the left leaning conspiracy theories about this shooting, even if I'm trying to hold off until we have more verified information.

      But I don't get where this "Biden sent the shooter" idiocy is coming from because seriously here? He has an actual job, with stuff to do etc. Now if you wanted me to believe Steve Bannon sent the shooter I would be more receptive, mostly because it's the kind of out there theory I can get behind.

      I don’t mind that they want to see people they love, but why the prevarication

      Doesn't fit in with the "we need a safe and stable home across the country " grifting theme. I don't think people would have donated as much if they knew there was a planned holiday in the middle, and I am wondering how many donors are now side-eyeing the hell out of them. Because that wasn't a small omission there, it was strongly implied that both flights were sequential and necessary to get to where they are planning to live.

      I swear if it turns out they've moved two suburbs away in Seattle... I will probably laugh. I doubt this is the case - why fly the cats? - but part of me is expecting to find out they've moved to Salem, Oregon, or Sacramento.

      It is possible for spouses and children of defendants in federal CSA/child porn cases to request (and receive) mental health services through the Federal Defender Victim/Witness programs. But the key detail is that it has to be requested and typically that happens in situations where the spouse is trying to separate/divorce from the offender.
