There were 1,000 garment bags with expensive gowns and dresses, 800 pairs of shoes, and rows of designer clothes at the Magda home. One-third of the items still had price tags attached, totalling $1.17 million.

Who wants to bet that her "shopaholism" is declared a disease and she walks with probation?

In as much as I believe compulsive spending is an addiction, I believe that she should do time commenserate with her crime. I understand she faces up to ten years in jail. Sounds to me like jail is a a good idea.

Small timer. She could have chosen larger papers, and married the boss, like Barbara Amiel.

Then at least she'd be doing something for the money besides stealing it.

Wow, that's an awfully long time to get away with stealing money. And she would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling temp!
