Not Going on a Mission Ruined My Life …

This story is pretty amazing:

Defendant: Losing chance to serve LDS mission ruined my life

So, this guy embezzles $ 1.3 million, and what does he blame it on? Not being able to go on a mission. His logic:

1. While still in his teens, he got his girlfriend pregnant.
2. He and his family were devastated, and he was unable to forgive himself.
3. He embezzled money “trying to make up for that mistake [the pregnancy] since the day it happened. That has caused me to sacrifice my values.”

My favorite part of the article:

“Kapp wrote he plans to go to law school following prison because he likely won’t be able to find a job in the financial industry.”

I’m sure he’ll make an awesome attorney.

    What would you rather he do? Sell crank?

  2. Kullervo says:

    With an embezzlement conviction on his record, not only will he not be admitted to practice in any state, but it is likely that no law school will even admit him in the first place.

  3. […] the whole doctrine of eternal gender roles is deeply problematic. The problem with modesty/chastity isn’t just the insanity, but rather blaming one person for another’s actions or valuing the human less […]

  4. Odell says:

    He won’t be able to even take the bar exam as a result of his felonies. I agree with Kullervo that it is not even likely that a law school wil admit him.

    I guess law schools like their students innocent so we can be taught the right way to commit crimes.
