Cumbrian care home manager stole pensioner's cash
Last updated at 15:15, Friday, 22 February 2013
A care home manager who defrauded a 74-year-old man out of £2,400 is to be sentenced by a crown court judge.
Magistrates in the city heard how Jaqueline Forbes, 52, who described her financial situation as “desperate”, had abused her position at the Hazel Bank care home in Penrith.
She admitted 12 counts of fraud and one theft.
Forbes, of Rowan Court, Penrith, committed the offences between July 24 and September 27 last year, stealing a Barclays bank card belonging to a frail and vulnerable pensioner staying at the home.
Prosecutor Adrienne Harris told how Forbes used the bank card she took to withdraw amounts of £200 from a local cashpoint.
Magistrates declined jurisdiction, sending the case to Carlisle Crown Court for sentence on March 22.
