ANGLETON — A former Liverpool firefighter and treasurer for the department paid $40,000 of restitution and will serve 90 days in jail after pleading guilty to theft, according to court documents.

Kelly Lynne Gabel, who is married to a former chief of the Liverpool Volunteer Fire Department, pleaded guilty to the second-degree felony charge Wednesday. A plea deal will give her five years of probation and require her to complete 400 hours of community service along with the restitution and jail time, but deferred adjudication will allow her to not be convicted of the felony if she successfully completes the terms of her probation.

As long as you limit your theft to government, you only get a slap on the wrist. That goes from local through federal. Look at the thieves in Washington, mayors offices, governors. An example needs to be made of these people, not a slap on the wrist.
