A Funeral director has been found guilty of desecrating human remains by substituting other remains for ashes  scattered  by mistake.

As innocent as this mistake may seem it does indicate a lack of respect for the dead

“A Libertyville funeral director has pleaded guilty to desecrating human remains for substituting ashes that had been buried in a cemetery for some that had been mistakenly scattered over a Wisconsin lake.

After entering her plea Thursday in Lake County Circuit Court to the class three felony, a judge sentenced 32-year-old Marcee Dane of the Burnett Dane Funeral Home to 30 days in jail and 150 days of home monitoring. She was also fined $10,000.

The Chicago Tribune reports Dane has surrendered her funeral director’s license, and can’t work at the family business during her probation.
