NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — Sandra Payne, 58, was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison for stealing from her elderly client.

According to court documents, while working as an in-home caregiver, Payne got access to credit and debit card numbers belonging to the elderly client’s family members.

Payne took the card numbers and spent over $21,000 in the Tidewater area.

U.S. Postal Inspection Services investigated, ultimately sending her to prison.

Payne pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated identity theft in February.
