Letters: Convicted embezzler released from jail

Editor,

This is in response to your Friday, Nov. 18 story “Convicted HOA embezzler released from jail.”

I live in the Woodlake apartments in San Mateo. Sue Lambert, former manager of the Homeowners Association, stole $2.8 million from the people who live in Woodlake. About one year ago, she was arrested and put in jail. District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said she was looking at six to seven years in prison.

A couple of months ago I read she”ll receive no more than three years and four months. The district attorney cut a deal just to get a conviction! Now to top it off, Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Lee let the embezzler go free until her sentencing. No more bail because she’s been a good girl. Who says crime doesn’t pay?
