Calling it one of the crimes that offends him the most, a judge sent a Philadelphia woman to jail for stealing from a 92-year-old Abington woman for whom she worked as a home health aide.
Shamihra Nicole Johnson, 23, was sentenced in Montgomery County Court to two-to-23-months in the county jail, to be followed by three years’ probation, after she pleaded guilty to felony charges of theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property in connection with incidents that occurred in May 2009.
President Judge Richard J. Hodgson ordered Johnson to pay $9,000 in restitution to the elderly woman to cover the amount of money that was stolen.
“These are the kind of crimes that offend me the most. The oldest people are helpless and duped because of these crimes,” said Hodgson, adding those elderly who are distrustful of banks and keep their money at home are most at risk of such crimes.
