There's a new runaway bride in town- but she didn't run from her man, she escaped from THE MAN. Julianne Mitrovska successfully dodged the year-long jail sentence she deserved for stealing more than $123,000 from the trade union she worked for. Cold feet were the least of her worries, because this bride needed cold cash. She stole the money to pay off the extensive debt she incurred from having a lavish Australian wedding. Instead of getting newly wed to the slammer, she was sentenced to complete 250 hours of community service- which, for pleading guilty to eight charges, was another "steal" on her part.
Moral of the story: There's always Vegas. It's cheaper, and it's also less of a gamble than embezzling money from a bank to pay for an elaborate wedding. Really, I think the family will understand.
