You're blaming the town? >>
No, not necessarily. Let's face it, the main reason why the town went down is because the rich people complained about their property values, not health and safety.
You don't trow a woman in jail because she didn't mow her lawn. Remember, the judge is appointed by the mayor where his salary is paid for by the property tax payers. They complain, everyone jumps.
why is it that some judges take extenuation circumstances into consideration from thugs and rapists and not from a woman who was bilked out of thousands by a contractor.

(What were Ted Kennedy & his nephew doing on Good Friday, 1991? Getting drunk and raping women)
So we should let emotions control everything. Did you read the story...she DID NOTHING to try to rectify the situation. They would have worked with her if she made ANY effort. But she didn't. The sorry truth is that this is probably the best thing that could have happened to her. Now her ex knows of her plight, the community knows of her plight and I suspect people will help. So she stayed one night in jail. Big whoop.
And, by the way, what the hell is wrong with "RICH PEOPLE" worrying about their property values. Tell me, I'm extremely curious as to your answer.

Her lawyer said she owes him money but he would have helped her anyway!!
Why didn't he get her money back from the crooked contractor in the first place and why didn't the judge make that happen!!

I just love how the contractor was found guilty and fined.
Where did that fine go? General fund? Why shouldn't that fine go into helping this woman get the mess the contractor made UNdone or REdone?
