    Yes, easy time for Guth and Yaguda.I had heard she was working on an inmate fire crew. He’s already out. Now she can go dig up all the gold she buried out on the Olive Ranch. Speaking of the Olive Ranch, Motels, Gas Stations did they ever sell any of these assets?. It’s funny how you don’t hear anything about all this stuff. They just swept it under the carpet. Thanks Gerry

      Weren’t she and her boy sentenced back in November of ’09 for 12yrs (for her) and 8yrs (for him)? Let’s see… 13 minus 9 is 4, and 4 is less than 12. Hmmm. Must be REALLY good behavior to get out that early.
