11 months … that is all. Then they go out to what … do it again. Do you think they will be able to pay back the amount … $171,256 … within this almost 6 years, and do they have to repay with interest or a fine?
Now, what would be the effect on other corrupt caregivers if they knew they were going to get dumped in the clink for a few years AND have to pay back double the amount stolen? I bet if we could check this kind of thing is pretty rampant.

It's because of people like this that gives us honest caregivers a bad name. Especially because I share the same nationality and heritage as these women, it's even harder on me. What do people get out of stealing?? Shame.

They just ruined it for all the good honest tongan caregivers that are out there and I come from a family of good honest caregivers...thank god I ain't related to any of those 2, I'd be embarrassed....it's bad enough I'm embarrassed now (thanks to those 2 idiots) that did such an horrid act and put a scarlet letter on my nationality and profession...and I'm a caregiver....so damn shameful...

Yeah for Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office in achieving such an outstanding sentence for two cruel theives! Good grief! What sort of weak prosecution was presented that let these two heartless women off so lightly. This is a joke of a sentence. Shane on those two women and shame on the court.

What a shame! This seemed to be common amongst Tongan Caregivers. It brings a bad name to the Pacific Islanders here in America, not only to caregivers, but to the Pacific Island Community as well.. They should be sent back to where they came from. "Learn not to live beyond your means". Appreaciate what you have.
