Woman charged with theft, larceny in North Carolina

People who work as home health aides are often placed in difficult situations. In some cases, they may be required to help their patients make purchases, for example, potentially placing them in a position in which they could be looked on with suspicion due to a transaction requiring a patient's own funds. In fact, three people who worked as home health care workers in North Carolina now face allegations of theft and larceny.

The most recent arrest involved a 52-year-old woman. Police say that the woman was an aide to a North Carolina woman. Law enforcement officials believe that from Feb. to May 2018, the defendant stole more than $11,000 from the woman. Reports claims she did this by using the woman's debit card.

Reports indicate that the patient notified police after she discovered the money believed to be missing. At least two other people -- also working as the alleged victim's health care aides -- are also believed to have aided the recently-charged woman. One of them has been arrested though the details of her arrest are unclear.

The woman who was recently arrested now faces multiple counts of larceny and obtaining property by false pretenses. She is being held on a $48,000 bond. Unfortunately, cases involving accusations such as these can be complicated, making it difficult for defendants to fully understand their options without guidance from an experienced professional. Fortunately, there are criminal defense attorneys who can carefully examine the elements of the woman's case and help her determine the most appropriate course of action, potentially including negotiating for a plea deal or fighting the allegations in court.
