What Actions for Glen Rose Medical Center Embezzlers?

At about the same time in 2012 that Glen Rose Medical Center was making an agreement with one of their employees who had embezzled money, a couple of boys were caught breaking into houses in Somervell County. Let's compare.The following is from an Open Records Request to GRMC.

The employee at GRMC was paid accrued time off of $19,100.16 in her release agreement. From that money, $4,127.04 was to be taken out for the money that "should have been withheld from certain of Employee's paychecks in 2011 and 2012". This was not an instance of some carelessness or mismanagement of funds, this was someone purposefully altering how money was taken out of her personal paycheck, thus stealing from the company (and from the taxpayer). We have to ask why this person was not charged with a crime rather than creating a behind-the-scenes agreement to allow her to pay back the money which was apparently stolen over a 2 year time frame.

As we noted recently, the young high school boys, on the other hand, had their pictures put on the front of the newspaper after they were arrested for burglarizing some homes. What happened to them? Within about 2 months, they had been indicted by a grand jury.

the Glen Rose teenagers arrested in May for burglarizing several homes, last week each pleaded guilty in court to three counts of burglary, each a second-degree felony.

In return, they received more lenient punishments that included 10 years of probation and 120 days in a short-term corrections facility.

Second-degree felonies are punishable by two to up to 20 years in prison for each count.

.....

The pleas were taken in the 249th District Court in Somervell County last Wednesday. A grand jury indicted the two individuals last month.

It's no wonder that some wondered why there was a double standard of justice. Perhaps the boys would have had it easier if they had been embezzlers instead of burglars.

To compare penalties, here is a site that says what Texas penalties for embezzlement is.

$1,500 or more, but less than $20,000. Also includes livestock with an aggregate value of less than $20,000; firearms (regardless of value); official ballots or carrier envelope for an election; or metal including aluminum, bronze, copper, or brass, worth less than $20,000. Penalties include a fine of up to $10,000, at least 180 days in jail (and up to two years in prison), or both.

At around that same time in 2012, an investigation was opened by the Texas Rangers. I have redacted parts of an answer coming back from the Rangers regarding an open records request. Notice that the investigation doesn't appear to be complete, as some records requested are being withheld pending an Attorney General opinion as it is potential evidence. There is not an open case (and has no case number to identify it)  as this is a "direct to grand jury" according to the DA's office in Cleburne. In fact, this case has been at the DA's now for over a year without being brought to the grand jury so we have to assume that the case is still being investigated and that at some point it will be brought before a grand jury.

On 7/27/13 I posted a comment that I found it rather ODD that Judge Ford guaranteed in July 2012 that nothing would come out of investigation that Jerry Lee pursued with law enforcemen regarding missing funds at hospital. Deal was actually struck in June 2012. Since when can law breakers stealing tax payers money and then walk away with a check?  We got ripped off twice in the same caper. Think more people involved?  I DEFINITELY DO!!!!!!!!!   It will all come out in the "wash". FBI is working in Corsicana, just a hop and a skip away!

Bones are rattling in the closet that is going to be unlocked soon!

Do you think DA's office is going to "drop the ball" on this case?  Weird because Texas Rangers found something. Also an unelected person signed agreement. They can't say an official told them to do so because if it was a "special session" decision AND it's against the law to talk about it!  Talk about "painting themselves into a corner!". They would have been better off "to shoot themselves in the foot". Lol. See crime does NOT pay!  Serves them right. They've been mishandling taxpayers' money all along. What other "BIG" surprises are next?

The question to me is: If someone employed by a taxpayer funded entity commits a crime, and one that requires payback to replace stolen funds, should that be kept quiet from the taxpayer? In this instance, the appointed and elected entities both decided to hide this.It seems particularly ironic that the person in charge of a county court for justice would also be one of those making decisions about passing on a criminal act

Other examples.

Well ..... I was WRONG!!!  Justice did not prevail and the laws in place are not protecting us. Shame on me for thinking elected officials work for us!  They get a check (from us) regularly. What goes around comes around. Full circle. Truth will be revealed from the housetops!

Most recently, although this was not an embezzlement FROM Glen Rose Medical Center, one of the director level employees, Liz Morgan, who still works, startlingly, with HIPAA and patient records, took money from a chuch
