Nursing Home Receptionist Stole Over $40,000 from Facility

A woman has been ordered to pay over $40,000 in restitution after stealing from a nursing home where she worked. The woman has been sentence to jail after being charged with fifty-four counts of theft.

The woman, 56, was employed as a nursing home receptionist from 2004-2007. During that time, she altered the cash receipts log so it appeared that residents were paying less than the actual amounts. She then took some off the top of resident's payments and kept it for herself. The total theft from the nursing home was $40,400. The theft was discovered in 2007. The woman now has to repay the facility and spend six months in jail. For more, read the story.
