Kirsten Hamling apologizes for stealing from Children's Hospital Colorado charity

Kirsten Hamling is sorry she stole more than $200,000 from a charity she started to raise money for Children's Hospital burn-unit victims. Her nonprofit group, Fired Up For Kids, collected money with an annual firefighters' calendar -- which got only positive attention until accusations surfaced that Hamling was pocketing donations inspired by hunky men (and a few women) posing for a good cause. Today, she was sentenced to ten years of probation and ninety days in jail.
