>>A South Florida village commissioner and former beauty queen has been sentenced to a year of probation and 50 hours of community service for pretending to be a paralegal to get into a federal immigration detention center to see her romantic partner.

Seems like a light sentence

What the what? A former beauty queen lying to get conjugal with a prisoner? WTF? In Miami too. Plenty of eligible bachelors there. Why would she even do this? This is bizarre.

Men in prison have a specific appeal of danger but under control while in prison, it’s very appealing to a specific type of woman.

Damn..... there's illegals walking the streets looking for work. She could of gone to home depot. I kid. Seriously though I mean you love who you love. Shouldn't of broke the law moron. Watch... her community service will be at the detention center.

That's not a punishment if that's where she lied to get into.

Oh come on, AP. It's been over a year since the incidents. You aren't going to tell us whether her partner has been deported, is still in detention, or has been released?

Yeah, I know, it might not be completely relevant to the article. But as silly as we might want to make this, these are real human beings involved. And as someone who once had the extended nightmare of dealing with the immigration bureaucracy on behalf of a spouse who had entered the country legally as a child but then had her visa renewal denied for no given or apparent reason (while the rest of her family was approved), I can't help but feel sympathy here.

Not sure if the headline is referring to the crime or the punishment

I actually live in this municipality. I had an instinctive distrust when she was running to get elected, and despite that I was still shocked at the brazenness of her criminal acts.

This municipality is confounding, as there are stretches of waterfront property sitting vacant year after year, when other similarly situated municipalities are prospering.

Here I’ll spell it out to be clear - several “causeways” connect Miami (the mainland) to Miami Beach (a barrier island) and this one appears ready for restaurants, a boardwalk and transformation into a cool place to go, but the municipally management seems questionably competent.

For two little islands with a population of about 3500 people, we have an excessive number of police vehicles, each optioned to the maximum, a police boat, and more seemingly misplaced expenditures. Great waterfront lots are vacant. It makes you question why south beach has abundant sidewalk cafes, shops and businesses, and then when you travel a bit north to north beach and north bay village, much it remains in a sorry state. Okay, that sidetracked a bit, but the village commissioners are of questionable competence, to be sure. Good bye and good luck, Ms. Stout.
