Well, nice to see that she is enjoying her time in the limelight-she's smiling in the arrest photo! Seriously, does she not understand that she is going to JAIL? Smiling would be the last thing I'd be doing!

From a outsider looking in, these 2 just may be by far the Dumbest Criminals of the year... The fact that a little girl was left at a lake house for 10 hrs well they went to "work", you definitely are not getting the "Mother of the Year" Award!... Karma is a such a sad thing... The true colors have shined through yet again...Im not saying I do but Im sure alot of people wish you both the worst... Orange sure will bring out the color of you're eyes :) Take care

motherlove, how do you know that SHE is not the one who led HIM down the path of evil?? I'd bet he was just an everyday guy who would do anything for anyone before he met her (I'm sure you've read that here before). You say, and I quote: "if you read the bible you shouldnt throw stone and condeam anyone you got help so can she".

Now, didn't you "condeam"(your spelling not mine) the "bum" and are "throw stone" (throwing stones) yourself. I'm sure you have heard the term: pot, kettle, black? That's you.

From an outsider lookin in, and knowing all the parties involved in this matter, let me give everyone my 2 cents! She may have made $4000 in one week but she lost it all in one day! But from a mothers point of view, this "other" girl was going down the wrong path messed up with drugs and it took one day for her to wake up and realize she was going no where fast! And on top of that she had no kids. But in this case she has kids and has always been on drugs and of course wants to change now and make her life better cause she got caught! Of course we would all say this! But why now?!? Why wouldnt you do it for the sake of your children when you lost them!??! You think you would wake up then once they were taken from you..but that is what people do when they are on drugs! So lets keep this "other" girl outta this! What does she have to do with all this?!?! All she tries to do is better her life for herself. And she worries about the kids thoughts and feelings, and they may not be her children but they mean the world to her! That is love!! So worry about the people that is really in the wrong here and let the ones be that are just trying to do the best they can in life! Lets look at the real picture here people! God has placed everyone where they obviously belong! Just let it be! God bless you all! :)

Well David has done a prison sentence before, Im dont know her. This just isnt suprising. They'll probably get a small stay in jail, pay some restitution, and be back on the street. I hope if drugs are being used it comes at their expense, we spend so much money on rehab, just to have people go right back at it.
