Former Finance Director Is Denied Request For Early Release

The former Johnson County Schools Finance Director is denied a request for an early release from prison.

Peggy Vanhoose is serving a 63-month sentence in federal prison after a jury convicted her in 2007 on charges she stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the school system.

Court documents show Vanhoose requested the judge reduce her sentence or let her serve home incarceration.

The judge denied the request because of her current appeals.

    Call me mean, but I feel no sympathy for Mrs. Vanhoose. For one thing she wasnt worried about having her vehicle or home repossed while she was stealing thousands of dollars. Now she knows what it feels like not to live the fine life of luxury. All the years she walked around with her head held high in her designer clothes, driving her luxury vehicle and not caring what happens to the less fortunate people of Johnson County. How many times has the divorced women tried to get their child support from the Johnson County Board of Education to feed their children and all Mrs. Vanhoose could say is the check will be in the mail. What she forgot to say is, "my check has to be written first", then your children can eat next week. Well Mrs. Vanhoose, I know it's hard to be locked up and you no longer have Mr. Hamilton around to protect you. I wonder if his wife ever found out about your secret relationship with the Big O, before he passed away? Dont break a nail!
