Licensed Nursing Assistant Jailed for Stealing from Elderly Client

Attorney General Michael A. Delaney today announced that Pamela Wilton, age 44, of Derry was sentenced in Hillsborough County Superior Court to serve 90 days in the House of Corrections for stealing two credit cards from an 83-year-old Goffstown woman in 2009. Wilton was also sentenced to concurrent suspended sentences of 2-5 years in the state prison for two counts of credit card fraud and one count of identity fraud related to the use of the cards.

In the Spring of 2009, Pamela Wilton was employed as a licensed nursing assistant with Interim Health Care in Manchester. She was assigned to assist the Goffstown senior with various personal and household duties in the senior's home. While caring for the victim, Wilton stole two credit cards belonging to the victim and over a 2-day period, made more than 18 purchases with the cards. The victim was alerted to Wilton's actions when her credit card companies called her to report the suspicious activity on her cards. Goffstown Police investigated and obtained an arrest warrant for Wilton's arrest.

Wilson was also sentenced to 3 years probation, must perform 100 hours of community service, and ordered not to provide any healthcare services to anyone over the age of 60 for 5 years. In addition, she may not have any contact with the victim other than a letter of apology which she must write to the victim.

The charges were prosecuted by the Attorney General's Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Unit.
