Why did Anita Guzzardi, the former Chief Financial Officer of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, embezzle $906,000 from her employer?
In court today at a sentencing hearing, four different people offered four different explanations.
The prosecutor said Guzzardi didn't need the money, but she was greedy, and liked "nice things."
Guzzardi's addictions counselor said she was a pathological gambler who suffered from depression.
Guzzardi's older sister said she came from a dysfunctional family with a father who was a gambling addict and a mother who was a compulsive shopper and also abusive.
And finally, Guzzardi's lawyer said she felt betrayed by the archdiocese, after she read the 2005 grand jury report, and discovered that for decades the church she worked for had been covering up the sexual abuse of children.
