Frederick caregiver, 21, pleads guilty to theft of money from elderly client

April 09, 1997

A Frederick woman who swindled money from an elderly woman under her care pleaded guilty yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court to one count of theft.

Nancy Walter, 21, will be sentenced May 29 by Judge Francis M. Arnold.

Prosecutors said Walter wrote inflated checks to herself from the woman's bank account. She falsely recorded the amounts of checks written on April 10 and April 24 last year. Walter wrote $98 in the ledger of the woman's checkbook, but cashed a check dated April 10 for $198 and one dated April 24 for $298, prosecutors said.
