Amanda Strickland, the next-door neighbor to 8-year-old Mariah Weinman, who died when a tree fell on her house during a tornado, is an absolute fiend.
Strickland, who actually launched the GoFundMe campaign to ‘help’ the family, linked it to her personal bank account. It raised more than $14,000 in the first week, of which she paid $13,000 to the family.
That’s nice, right? Maybe. However, she never ended the campaign and continued to garner donations. The total amount pulled in was roughly $21,000, of which she kept the difference.
She was arrested and resides currently in the Leon County Detention Facility on charges of failure to apply contributions in a manner substantially consistent with the solicitation.
She made her $1,000 bond and awaits a court date.
