Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Kurt Busch's Ex-Girlfriend Get Prison Time for Fraud and Tax Evasion

Karma for Busch and Driscoll?

Couple In Happier Times (2013)
Remember back in 2015, when NASCAR’s 2004 Cup Champion, Kurt Busch was indefinitely suspended by NASCAR after a Delaware family court cited "more likely than not" that Busch had abused his ex-girlfriend Patricia Driscoll?

Driscoll had made the domestic violence accusation after the couple split up. She had used Busch's personal entrance code to let herself into Busch’s motor coach at Dover International Speedway. She alleged that the driver strangled her and slammed her head against the wall of his trailer three times.

Kurt Busch applied for reinstatement ten days after the Daytona 500, and began his reinstatement program. On March 11, 2015, NASCAR lifted Busch's indefinite suspension after prosecutors in Delaware determined there was not enough evidence to bring a criminal case against Busch, making him eligible to compete again. Additionally, Busch was granted a waiver by NASCAR, making him still eligible for the Chase if he won a race between then and the autumn Richmond event. Despite missing three races, Kurt finished eighth in the point standings with two wins (Fontana & Fort Worth)

In November 2018, Patricia Driscoll, age 41, was found guilty of using her position as the executive director of the Armed Forces Foundation to steal from the nonprofit and donors while simultaneously hiding her salary from the IRS and the public.

On September 13th, she was sentenced to **twelve (12) months and one day in prison. She will also serve 36 months of supervised release, a period of home confinement, 360 hours of community service and pay $154,289 in restitution and $81,779 in a money judgment forfeiture.

A jury found that Driscoll was using the foundation’s money for personal use and to pay her for-profit business expenses.

Previously, Ms. Driscoll stated about the abuse claim, “I’m telling you, it’s better to take the beating that day and keep your mouth shut than it is for anything that has happened after . . . . . . It is not worth it at all. I should have stayed quiet.” 
In a statement, Driscoll’s attorneys said: “The jury did not get it right — Patricia Driscoll is innocent. We are very disappointed by the verdict.” The statement, from attorney Brian W. Stolarz, added: “We will appeal. This is not the final chapter to this story.”

NASCAR Race Mom has no idea if Ms. Driscoll’s allegations against Kurt Busch held merit – but ***karma has seemingly made an appearance in this NASCAR drama.

**Twelve Months and a Day Sentence - For anything up to a year, the convicted serves county time at day for day. Which means you must do almost 6 months in custody. However, after a year you go to prison which means you have “good time” further reducing your sentence.

***Karma - the sum of a person's actions in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences.
