11 months for what is a ten-year felony is an awfully light sentence and simply sends the message that in Delta and Menominee Counties "crime DOES pay." The courts can levy all the restitutions and paybacks they want, but nobody (other than Ives The Embezzler) will see a dime of it when all he and his scamming wife, Jennifer, have to do is declare bankruptcy. I guess to get "real" jail time you have to be a violent offender. Simply stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from people just doesn't rate as a legitimate crime worthy of legitimate punishment.

The paper says with 172 days credit, almost 6 months, so it's really a 5 month sentence. At least any criminally awarded restitution cannot be deleted in bankruptcy like a civil award. Middle is right though, no one will see any money out of an evil crook like this guy and his famiily.
