A healthcare worker who stole the identities of disabled clients and used their credit cards for purchases such as Victoria's Secret lingerie was sentenced to 15 to 30 months in jail.
Antoinette Colclough, 43, of Darby, Pa., was "nothing less than a parasite," Judge Patricia Jenkins said in sentencing her on Tuesday. "Your actions are despicable."
Colclough, a former employee of the Pennsylvania Agency of Nurses, will remain under court supervision until she repays $28,900 in restitution. During that time she may not work in the healthcare field or care for the elderly or disabled, Deputy District Attorney Gregory Hurchalla.
He said the victims have received their lost money through credit card companies.
