    Ha-ha. That was exactly what I thought. Yep! You can bet on that. ;‑) I guess the two women may have learned they had gotten themselves in a mess after getting sober. I'm sure what they had done taught them fully crime doesn't pay.

    I hope they don't get a pity-party sentence and are put behind bars.
