Keep Your Chargers Away from these Girls!

Let me preface this by saying that I have always been a big advocate of more interaction between the College and the townspeople of Hillsdale. It is a great community with some great people living in it. But, you still have to be careful with whom you mingle both on and off campus. Here are three girls all Charger parents should pray their sons never bring home to meet mom and dad, or do anything else with.

From The Jackson Citizen Patriot:

Three women charged with stealing from area farm

Monday, January 09, 2006
A preliminary exam is set for Wednesday for three Hillsdale County women, ages 19 to 21, who are charged with stealing money from a Cement City farm.

Lisa Bolenbaugh, 21, and Alisha Ritter, 18, both of Hillsdale; and Ashley Lick, 19, of Jerome face multiple felony counts related to a series of thefts at Flavor Fruits Farm, 11025 S. Jackson St.

The women, who were employees, are suspected of stealing an estimated $4,000 to $8,000 during an 18-month period, authorities said.

"The owner is still adding it up," said Detective Sgt. Lance Benzing, Hillsdale County Sheriff's Department.

In November, deputies were called to the farm after a safe containing $5,000 was stolen, Benzing said. Investigators haven't linked the women to the safe theft.

The three, who remain free on personal bond, have a probable cause hearing at 11:30 a.m. before District Judge Donald Sanderson.

I happen to know one of these girls mentioned here. She was one of dozens of people involved in this situation. She was also one of only three who went forward and confessed. The only reason anyone was convicted of anything was these three girl's willingness to set things right. They don't deny they made a mistake, but let's not mock them for trying to do the right thing afterward when they could have kept quiet and gotten away with it. Trust me when I say you could bring home a lot worse.

Thanks for your input Paul. Let's hope the girls do learn from the situation. It is admirable that they came forward to face their mistakes. We never get to hear that side of the story.

Andy-
Well actually I can not believe I just came by this article by googling myself, considering it has been over a year. But I happen to be one of the three girls who were involved in this crime. I couldn't believe my eyes when I read your "preface" before the actual article. Just as people say you can not judge a book by it's cover, you also can not jump to conclusions as to what kind of girls any three of us are. I bet you probably have a picture in your head of what we look like, and what kind of lives we live. But actually all three of us are from very good families, all three of us graduated from high school, went on to college, and lead very succesfull lives. Everyone makes mistakes in their lives, and we did too, a huge one at that. Just not everyone has had their names exploited all over the papers, and I guess on the internet too. But thank you for the judgemental things you had to say and also looking out for the Hillsdale Charger boys. Personally I believe they would be fortunate to bring any one of us home to their parents. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and that situation made us stronger and better people.
And I guess to me the only judgement that matters at the end of each day is the one I receive from God, and you have no place to point fingers.
