Bosworth Finishes Community Service; Extra Hours Make Up for Double Dates

Convicted felon Annette Bosworth has completed her community service. According to time sheets filed October 13, the scandal-plagued doctor and former fake Republican U.S. Senate candidate performed the last 19.5 hours of the court-prescribed 500 hours of community service by preparing for and participating in an addiction-treatment seminar for the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board and offering other presentations and training to non-profits in Rapid City on October 10–12.

One would think that, after being convicted of twelve felony counts based on conflicting dates on paper, Bosworth would be more careful about the numbers she writes on official documents. But a review of the time sheets shows at least one double dip on hours when Bosworth tells the court she was doing two things at once.

Sheet 6 reports that on May 17, 2016, Bosworth served four hours, from 12 to 4 p.m., conducting “PD Officer Training” signed off on by Richard Jensen. Sheet 5 reports that on May 17, 2016, Bosworth served four hours, from noon to 4 p.m., at Oglala Lakota College, signed off on by either Tatewin Means or Favran Kennedy (I cannot decipher the signature, but it is clearly not Richard Jensen’s).

Sheet 4 reports that on July 13, 2015, Bosworth served four hours, from 8 a.m. to noon, preparing and coordinating a “Seminar Education on Brains Addiction & Healing/Repair Process.” Sheet 8 reports that on July 13, 2015, Bosworth served eleven hours, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., working on “Addiction Programs.” However, this discrepancy appears to be simple reporting mistake by Bosworth: she wrote “7/13/15” on Sheet 4, but Jennifer Giroux signed off on it on 9/9/2016. The seminar mentioned appears to be the seminar Bosworth presented to the Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board in Rapid City on October 11, 2016 (which presentation also counted toward Bosworth’s community service).

If the May 17 conflict is real and would disqualify both four-hour entries from the count, Bosworth is still to the good on hours. On Sheets 7 and 8, she undercounted her hours. When I add up all hours on the ten sheets, I get 513.25 hours. Subtract the May 17 error, and Bosworth still has 5.25 hours to spare. Thanks for the bonus, Annette!

Bosworth showed early enthusiasm for completing her sentence, putting in over two thirds of her hours (343.75) in the six months immediately after her sentencing. Then Bosworth’s enthusiasm waned: after eighteen hours of service at the end of January, Bosworth waited until May to put in any more hours and then worked in dribs and drabs into October to finish her sentence.

Now if she can just get those $11,945.10 in court costs paid back to us. At $50 a month (per the court payment agreement filed on October 13, 2016), we should see our final check for the bad doctor in 2035.

    Glad to see she has completed her community service, but the amount of time you have spent analyzing these sheets and calculating hours comes across as… I don’t know – petty perhaps? Vindictive? A overt display of schadenfreude?

    I simple paragraph explaining she has completed her service would have sufficed.

    I appreciate the reporting. Bosworth has demonstrated that her paperwork needs to be checked closely.

    If I were in her place with $12,000 in court fees I’d get them paid off as quickly as possible. That amount is the price of a used car. Treat it like a car payment and pay $400/month. No need to sell the Rolex to pay that bill early.

    It is good that you are the arbiter of the pretty young doctor’s sentencing, Mr. H. Somebody needs to be watching her very closely.

    Craig, given everything in my files already, I figured I might as well provide complete documentation. Hey, I was even nice and noted her minor error was outweighed by her going beyond the requirements of her sentence to make up for her crime.

    Craig, someone needs to keep an eye on her. If not for Cory, she would have skated through the sieve called Jackley’s Joker Justice Department where turning a blind eye to crimes keeps them busy little beavers.

    Give Cory a warm round of well deserved attaboys!

    Let this be a cautionary tale to any other pretty young female doctors out there who might have political ambitions.

    Mr. H, I have an idea. You could let Dr. Bos write a blogging for your pages here telling all of us her side of things. Let her blog a bit now that she’s a free woman, and encourage the readers to not try and gut her from stem to stern with rude comments. Get some thoughtful input on things, and maybe she could shed some light on stuff. I’m just sayin…

    Bosworth doesn’t need me to “let her blog a bit.” Bosworth has a blog. She doesn’t go at it very enthusiastically.
