She admitted to flushing an illicit $100,000 check from a developer down the toilet and trying to conceal $80,000 in cash in her underwear.

The Washington Times (http://bsun.md/A7fIu0) reports that prosecutors claim in court records that she has $170,000 in the bank.

Her attorneys claim that the money is needed for bills and to help sustain her family.

Prosecutors made a similar request over a fine owed by Jack Johnson before he reported to prison, but it was denied.
