Do you agree/disagree with Isabel Garcia claims this case is a waste of taxpayer funds - document fraud case?
Seven of 11 former Panda Express employees charged with criminal impersonation were sentenced Monday by Superior Court Judge Frank Dawley to time served in jail, $400 in attorney fees and a $25 indigent fee. Eight pleaded guilty, admitting they used fake Social Security cards to help them gain employment at a Tucson restaurant. Isabel Garcia, Pima County's legal defender and the attorney for Marlen Yobana Moreno-Peralta, 23, said her client used someone else's valid Social Security number to get a job and a car loan. The car she bought has been repossessed, Garcia said. "I submit to you (this case) is a waste of taxpayer money," Garcia said. "Someone at work (at the restaurant) called (the Department of Public Safety) to report them because of a poisonous atmosphere at work." "There is not one penny of harm to anyone involved in this case," Garcia said. http://www.tucsoncitizen.com/daily/local/94149.php Moreno-Peralta, 23, said her client used someone else's valid Social Security number to get a job and a car loan.

I completely disagree! Of course her name could be a possible indication of her hispanic leanings. They committed Identity theft, and fraud on many levels to gain their employment, which 7 other citizens could have been paid to do! They should have been imprisoned and then deported!

I completely disagree! What is a waste of tax payer money is giving these criminals free health care and education.
