On the second episode, Pink Collar Crimes host Marcia Clark tells the story of financial planner Jacqueline J. Stanfill of Knoxville, Tennessee. The 58-year-old extrovert with big blond hair introduced herself as “Jackpot Jackie” and lived a lavish lifestyle until her friends and family discovered that she’d been spending their retirement funds to finance her over-the-top life of luxury. When traveling abroad, Jackpot Jackie was known to have her favorite American beer (Coors in a can) shipped over.
In 2016, “Jackpot Jackie” Stanfill pled guilty to one count of wire fraud, one count of mail fraud, and one count of money laundering. She was sentenced to serve 108 months (nine years) in federal prison and was ordered to pay more than $8 million in restitution. At her sentencing, Stanfill cried as she told everyone in the courtroom including her spouse Regina Lambert: “I take full responsibility of my actions. I don’t blame them on my childhood or drinking. I took money that belonged to my family and friends. I have no excuse for my behavior.” Pink Collar Crimes airs Saturdays at 8pm on CBS.
