A former Harris County employee admitted to stealing more than a quarter million dollars meant for crime victims. Then, during the punishment phase, she begged the judge to go easy on her, but the judge had other plans.
Now Eloise Mireles and her husband are preparing to serve a long and unusual sentence.
Part of that sentence will be served at the intersection of Westheimer and Post Oak. Mireles and her husband will be forced to hold signs there every weekend declaring their crime in a very public way.
“While you are on community supervision, and listen closely because you are not going to enjoy this,” Judge Kevin Fine said.
