And only gets two years for it.

SNOW HILL, Md. — A former Worcester County teacher has been found guilty on charges of embezzlement of more than $433,000 from the county teacher’s union.

Denise Inez Owens admitted that while serving as the treasurer of the Worcester County Teacher’s Association she used its funds to pay for a gambling problem.

Prosecutors said their investigation showed that during a period of three years, Owens had visited casinos in Delaware on more than 600 occasions, and gambled more than $1 million.

Stealing from a union is like stealing from the mafia.

Good for her. I might as well say well done.
