CapeCodOnline.com – The former treasurer of the Cape Cod Kennel Club was sentenced to jail Thursday after facing charges she doctored bank statements and took more than $62,000 from the Sandwich-based organization.
Cynthia Savoia, 43, pleaded guilty in Barnstable Superior Court to falsifying entries into books and larceny of more than $250 pursuant to a single scheme.
Judge Gary Nickerson sentenced Savoia to two years in the Barnstable County Correctional Facility with six months to serve and the balance suspended during 10 years of probation for the larceny charge. She was also sentenced to one year in the county correctional facility with six months to serve and the balance suspended during 10 years of probation for the falsifying books charge.
Nickerson ordered the sentences to run concurrently.
Savoia must pay the full amount she owes — $62,199.40 — within the next 10 years. One of the conditions of her sentence is that she pay $15,000 within the next 10 days. Her probation will end when she pays off the balance.
The only thing worse than stealing from old people is stealing from dogs. Dogs just love people unconditionally and trust everyone, it’s in their nature. You ever take a toy from a dog? The poor thing gets so sad it’s heartbreaking, and they can’t fathom how someone could be so cruel.
Imagine the dogs getting wind of someone stealing $62,199.40 from them. I hope there is doggy Zoloft because they are probably spiraling into a deep depression as we speak. Now if you’ll excuse me I just saw a baby walk by my house with a bag of M&Ms, I’ve got to run outside and snatch it out its handsFacebook: The Real Cape
