The Former Mayor will likely spend quite a number of years thinking about this. Following her prison time, Tondreau will also be required to serve three years of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay restitution of which the actual amount has not yet been determined.

Her five year sentence is a relief compared to the original 30 years of prison she could have faced for such a crime. Lucie was accused for playing a leading role in a multimillion-dollar mortgage fraud scheme.

Since then, she has been suspended by Governor Rick Scott as governor of North Miami

Her business partner and ex-fiance, Karl Oreste, previously pleaded guilty and sentenced to serve eight years. Others implicated in this mortgage fraud are fugitives.

Lucie Tondreau should be deported to Haiti.

Why having the taxpayers spending all that money to keep her in jail?

Since she has to pay restitution, I wonder if all the victims of her Mortgage fraud will be compensated?

Because of her greed, so many families had lost their homes.

Lucie Tondreau is a cruck.

She has no place governing a major city like North Miami.

She is a former Aristide supporter.

She spent many years since she left Canada to establish herself in Miami, taking advvantage of the poor illiterate Haitians in Little Haiti and North Miami.

I feel for Lucie Tondreau.

This is something that could have happened to anyone.

How many time do you put your trust on someone and you get taken by that same person.

What I think is a lesson for Lucie and for many of us to be careful with people.
