'Good People' Violating the Public Trust

Embezzler Margarita Villegas bawls in court, crying, 'I'm so sorry'
The New York Daily News by Scott Shifrel - June 19, 2010

The politically connected former head of a Bronx nonprofit blubbered like a baby as a federal judge sentenced her to 10 months in prison for embezzling more than $50,000 from the charity. Margarita Villegas, 54, cited a catalogue of good deeds - such as running a local Little League and taking care of her elderly mother - in seeking a no-jail sentence for pleading guilty to looting SBCC Management Corp. of federal bucks intended for low- income, elderly and disabled tenants. "I'm so sorry for those I let down," she said, wiping her eyes with a crumpled tissue as her husband, daughter and other relatives watched. "If it takes me the rest of my life I will pay back every nickel." Manhattan Federal Judge Alvin Hellerstein said he had little choice because Villegas betrayed a public trust. "It's easier to punish bad people than it is to punish good people," he said. "And clearly, Ms. Villegas, you are a good person." Villegas, who's connected to Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo and Councilwoman Maria del Carmen Arroyo, wailed as the judge and clerk added a $3,000 fine, three years' supervised release and a reimbursement schedule.

I can wait for the "good people" in Orange County to be indicted and prosecuted for their crimes against children and families. Such as the pro-pedophile of Bernadette E. Lupinetti, Esq. from Goshen New York and the rest of her perverted cronies. andrew Cuomo why do you protect this criminal involved in using a United States of America Court as a vehicle to traffic and sell children for sexual performances? Andy if you become governor are you declaring child porn and pandering legal in the State of New York? So those in high positions can legally rape children?

Part of the problem is calling bad people good people.
