Clown-O-Meter: Man Breaks His Penis During a Bar Fight
The Town of Oxford claims Karen Guillet, its tax collector for 24 years, stole $670,000 from town coffers and spent it on spa visits, vacations, home renovations and shopping sprees. Just as shockingly, until a year ago, coworkers believed that wealthy relatives were providing Guillet, who earned $53,000 a year, with the lifestyle she faulted. She wore expensive jewelry and clothing, gave frequent gifts and received packages from luxury retailers at the office, according to a police affidavit. A town staffer Guillet sometimes employed as a personal assistant even saw stacks of bills literally piled up in her home — next to town tax records — and did not report it.
