Mother of 8 Embezzles from Elderly Marin Couple

Here some sad local news: An elderly couple, living in Marin, were victims of embezzlement. Who would do such a thing?.....
An almost fifty year old lady with eight children. Jane Macam McClellan has entered into a plea deal and has admitted to a single count of embezzlement.

Although the Marin County District Attorney initially believed that McClellan stole almost one hundred thousand dollars from the couple
(the wife is almost 100 years old and the husband is just over ninety), McClellan's lawyer denied those claims saying it was more like
seven grand.

Sentencing will take place on December 8th, with McClellan facing up to four years in prison.
