Easy Sentence for Prominent Charity Leader

By Gary Snyder

The former president of NARAL Pro-Choice New York leader Kelli Conlin pleaded guilty to stealing more that $75,000 even though she made more than $309,000, including a $90,000 bonus in 2009, the last year for which the organization's tax records are available. An internal audit found that Conlin had charged $5,700 in clothes from designer Giorgio Armani and the chic emporium Barney's, a $17,000 summer rental in the Hamptons, and more than $100,000 in car service, some of it for a driver to drop her children off at school. Her case will be closed without jail time or probation if she pays more than $75,000 in restitution.
