(SL) – The mind of a cheater is something else. People carrying on affairs, lies and deceit, but once their fraudulent life is exposed, panic sets. If you’re willing to take the risk, be willing to lose everything. After all, a married man or woman puts his life and those involved in jeopardy every time they participate in infidelity.
Cheaters never think they will get caught, but when they do….all hell breaks lose and most of them can’t face the repercussions of what they’ve done. A New Jersey School Superintendent is the latest to succumb to the pressure and backlash of his deceit after his wife filed for divorce on their anniversary.
The Daily Mail reports David Browne’s life ended in divorce, unemployment and possible jail time after hackers revealed that he had an account with cheating website Ashley Madison.
The 55 year old took medical leave from his job as a school superintendent in Randolph, New Jersey, September, shortly after the hackers leaked lists of the site’s 30 million users.
He was later placed on administrative leave from the $167,500-a-year job in October, the same day he is accused of setting fire to his detached garage in upscale Wyckoff, New Jersey.A source told the New York Post that Browne had an account on Ashley Madison and told his wife and employers about it after the data breach made international headlines.
In November his wife of 14 years filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and seeking custody of their two children, ages 12 and 10.
Monica Browne, 45, is also a school superintendent and filed for divorce on their anniversary.
Shockingly, David Browne’s lawyer Craig Swenson said that his client did not expect the filing. Not sure why he would assume that his wife wold be tolerant of this behavior, but okay.
Charges for the suspected arson, where authorities say Browne used an accelerant, are currently pending a grand jury review.Browne was injured with severe burns in the garage fire and neighbors said that he slit his wrists beforehand, though officials would not confirm the information.
Two weeks after the incident, Browne officially resigned from his job, with the president of the school board saying he did so ‘for the purpose of retirement’.
Browne will receive $62,350 in total severance compensation.
The Ashley Madison hack in August released millions of users information, including email addresses.
Michael Gorhum committed suicide after an anti-cop site reported that his name was among those listed on the Ashley Madison website.
Multiple suicides were reportedly caused by the data breach, including a Texas police officer whose name was not actually on the site but was posted as having been a user on another website.
Liar and cheat: Josh Taekman was proven to be on the website even though he claimed he was not. He used his credit card 62 times and sent 33 private pictures on the site – despite first lying to Daily Mail Online about it.
Many users of the site, where the stated aim is to help married people have affairs, created accounts but did not actually use the service, largely because of a lack of women.
