‘I was trying to make money’: Mom accused of stealing $200,000 in internet earnings
Mom and dad of a college student say she stole $200K from her online earnings from the video game Grand Theft Auto 5.
In court documents, the couple allege they discovered the couple was cheating on their 3-year-old daughter by giving her access to the internet to earn money while she was in and out of diapers.
They allege the couple also spent thousands of dollars on other expenses.
In February, the father pleaded guilty to stealing from the couple’s accounts and spending more than $1,500 to pay for a lawyer.
The couple’s son said in court documents that he was unaware the couple had been cheating.
He was trying his best to help, he said.
“I am not trying to get the parents to pay me, but I am trying to help.”
The couple faces up to 10 years in prison. (CBC)
