Caretaker Receives Probation After Stealing $60,000 from Elderly Client

A judge last week sentenced a 37-year-old woman who was a former caretaker to two years of house arrest, after she stole $60,000 from an elderly couple in 2011. The woman had worked as the couple's caretaker for three years, during which time she spent $60,000 of their money on items such as a SUV, a dog, and concert tickets.

According to the prosecutor on the case, it took the woman just three months to spend her clients' entire life savings on "things she didn't need." The judge who issued the probation said, if the suspect did not have small children, and there was not an elderly lady who needs to be repaid, she would have received jail time.  For more, read the story
