One Response to Deaf Studio 29 Trio Sentenced

  1. Neal Golden says:

    Judge Pisano didn't punish these thieves. If they steal and commit the crime. They should pay the time. These people will never pay the 2.5 million. The same goes for Irma and Joshua Finkle. I work for them and both are liars. I still don't understand how the government would allow them to get State , Federal and the Board of Education contract work. I still think the justice didn't do the job to make Deaf people realize that stealing is wrong!!!
