A Lynchburg nurse’s aide faces 18 counts of aggravated identity theft in a federal indictment handed down yesterday.
Karen Priscilla Jones, 48, is accused of using personal information from residents at nursing homes where she worked to obtain more than $9,000 worth of goods and services, according to the indictment.
In addition to identity theft charges, Jones is accused of wire fraud, mail fraud, forgery and credit card fraud. Maximum sentences total 386 years.
Jones is apparently free on bond and working in the Fredericksburg area.
