reporting that an an area woman has been sentenced to 21 years of house arrest arising out of her conviction on embezzlement from a Small Philadelphia title company. Here's the story:
"A suburban Philadelphia woman has been sentenced to 21 years of house arrest so she can work to repay $475,000 stolen from her employer.
A defense lawyer for 40-year-old Lanette Sansoni (pic) says the victim was more interested in restitution than jail time. Lawyer A. Charles Peruto Jr. says his client has repaid about $275,000 already and will stay on house arrest until the remaining $200,000 is paid. The judge set a payment schedule of $750 a month. That works out to 21 years. But Peruto expects Sansoni to pay off the debt sooner. She can leave home to work , but could go to jail if the payments stop. Sansoni, a title clerk, worked for a small title company that went bust because of the theft.
Prosecutors argued for incarceration."
