When the Charlie Sheen Defense Fails, Try, Try Again PTA Mommy Theft.

A former PTA treasurer in the Cobble Hill (aka Brooklyn) area of New York has been busted for embezzling approximately $100,000 from the school between 2006 and 2008. The upscale spa owner’s second time around motivational claim for the theft was that it was related to psychological and emotional problems steaming from her husband being fired and her spa struggling financially. Her rumored initial explanation though was that she needed and spent the money on fertility treatments, rent on her store and her apartment.

“She allegedly told police she took the money to “keep her family living in the lifestyle they were accustomed to,” which is known in some circles as the “Charlie Sheen Defense.”

This 22-count indictment should have possibly landed her almost 15 years in jail. But the other “den mothers” are just asking that she pay the money back. I get that budget cuts suck, but isn’t this letting her off a little too easy? And if she can pay it back—why did she steal it?! (didn’t she spend it?!)
