BOULDER, Colo. - A former Boulder Safehouse employee was sentenced to four years in prison Friday for stealing from the very clients she was supposed to be helping.
Kadny Zayle was given a four year prison sentence after a jury found her guilty of felony theft from seven victims and forging documents, reported the Daily Camera.
The judge also ordered Zayle to pay $10,613 in restitution to the victims.
She worked as the immigrant advocate for the Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Non-Violence, which helps victims of domestic violence.
Prosecutors said Zayle took money from undocumented immigrants telling them it was for visa paperwork. She then pocked the money and forged a document saying the money was from an immigration attorney's office.
Zayle took about $7,000 from her clients. Eventually one client complained to the Safehouse after she never received the services Zayle promised. The Safehouse investigated and fired her, the Camera reported.
