Gamma Phi Beta Stealing

Just about a year ago, I wrote about Jennifer Elizabeth Meehan, an alumna of Gamma Phi Beta, who was the president the University of Alabama chapter’s house corporation. Last June, Meehan was charged with stealing approximately $400,000 from the funds intended to furnish the chapter’s giant new mansion from September 2013 and March 2015. The last sentence of the original story read: “Meehan had better hope that the jury in her trial doesn’t include any sorority women – we don’t take kindly to people that steal from any of our Panhellenic sisters.”

Well, Meehan apparently came to her senses on that front, because it’s now being reported that instead of taking her case before a jury, she has pled guilty to bank fraud and money laundering. According The Tuscaloosa News,

She pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court on Tuesday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Birmingham. As part of a plea agreement, Meehan agreed to forfeit $234,648 to the government and pay $34,815 to Greek Resource Services. In exchange, prosecutors dropped seven other fraud and money laundering counts and recommended a 20-month prison sentence.

While she awaits her sentencing, there’s one thing Meehan won’t be doing: working in her chosen professional field. Trained as an attorney, she has also been suspended from practicing law in South Carolina. Might be time to take up some philanthropy, huh, Jennifer?

There really did used to be 2NOTBrokeGirls, but since one of them spent all of her money on shoes and vodka, there's now just one (financially stable) J, who is too lazy to change her user name. J spends her free time saving the world, one sorority girl at a time (usually while wearing yoga pants), questioning why she decided to go to graduate school, and documenting her love of all things cheese related. You can ask her anything you want about football, using your boobs to get what you want, and pizza at @2NOTBrokeGirls on Twitter or
