Caregiver Gets Eight Days For Stealing From Patient
(KVHT) – A caregiver accused of stealing more than $14,000 from a northeast Nebraska man she had been helping has been sentenced to eight days in jail. Cedar County District Court records show that 29-year-old Kayla Hansen, of Madison, also was credited Monday with eight days already served. She’d pleaded guilty to attempted theft by deception and to criminal mischief. Prosecutors lowered the original charges in return for her pleas. Records state that Hansen cleaned the man’s house and drove him to medical appointment – and that she had access to his bank account and debit card and used them to pay her own bills and those of her relatives.
