Arlington Hts. caregiver gets four years for thefts
An Arlington Heights caregiver was sentenced to four years in prison for stealing from her clients, authorities said Friday.
Krisann Henderson, 44, admitted to taking $25,000 worth of jewelry from three mentally or physically impaired clients as she worked as a certified nurse assistant in their homes, authorities said.
On Dec. 20, she pleaded guilty to two counts of theft over $500, and in a separate trial a day later, she pleaded guilty to one count of residential burglary and one count of theft over $500.
She was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison in each case. The sentences will be served concurrently, officials said.
Cook County sheriff's police said some of the stolen items included a 35-carat aquamarine brooch, 10-karat gold tennis bracelet with 35 round diamonds, and a pearl necklace.
Authorities said the first report they received was in January 2012, when a Northfield Township man said several pieces of his wife's jewelry were missing. Investigators later discovered that Henderson was a customer at an Arlington Heights pawnshop where several items from the Northfield Township victim turned up.
The two other victims were from Arlington Heights and Schaumburg.
