Jennifer Wilbanks is a Sycophant
ATLANTA - Runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks made a deal with a company that is pitching a movie about her life to networksIf there were ever a time to lecture about taking responsibility for one's actions, now is it. Here is the woman who just two weeks ago entered a guilty plea and agreed to pay only a fraction of the costs she racked up by lying, citing financial hardship.
I'm sorry, but this woman is a parasite. First of all, if she can afford a fancy wedding for 600 people, she can afford to pay for the police offcers who put in overtime on account of her fradulent charges. As if that weren't enough, however, now she stands to personally profit from her lie! Some people have no sense of decency.
Wilbanks pleaded no contest earlier this month to making a false statement and was sentenced to two years of probation and 120 hours of community service. She also was ordered to continue mental health treatment and pay the sheriff’s office $2,550.
Duluth spent nearly $43,000 to search for her. Wilbanks has repaid $13,249.
“It’s disturbing to me on a personal basis that she’s willing to profit from this, but there’s nothing I can do about it legally,” said Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter, who pursued charges against Wilbanks.
