A former administrative assistant for a judge in Arkansas pled guilty to credit card fraud. Prosecutors accused her of using public money to buy personal items, including a diamond ring, sequined throw pillows and a tuxedo for her dog - because if you're ever going to be caught for theft, you and your best friend should go down in style.
