Linda Bryant gets 42 years

The adoptive excuse for a mother of Austin Bryant and Edward Bryant, both of whom have been missing for years, perhaps ’round about a decade, has been sentenced to 42 years in prison for welfare fraud. She stole about $150k from the state, accepting checks for Austin and Edward’s care long after they were no longer living with her (and, one suspects, no longer living at all).

Given as how Linda is 55 years old, chances are she’ll never see the light of day again. The prosecutor, although she had asked for a “triple digit sentence” (Linda could’ve gotten anywhere from 5 to 648 years in prison), is satisfied with the result. Meanwhile, the boys’ excuse for a father is facing trial on the same welfare fraud charges in a month.
