“It was culturally appropriate for me to steal from my clients agency” assumes jailed NZ Disability Community Support Worker Manager.

Northland charity thief Toddy Shepherd released on parole - NZ Herald

Jailed for 3 years; appeals sentence; appeal successful, and sentence dropped to 2.5 years; serves just 1 year. According to the second article below, writing some self-reflections in a journal and completing some Counselling equates to a reduction in sentence of 1.5 years. Fascinating – and wrong.

Oh, and whilst financial reparations were required to pay back the money she stole, we have no way of knowing whether the entire $111,577.67 stolen was actually paid back.
