Meriden Woman Sentenced To 7 Years For Stealing From Patients

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A woman who worked as a clerk at a Waterbury nursing home has been sentenced to seven years in prison for stealing from the home’s patients.

Forty-seven-year-old Virginia Soules of Meriden pleaded guilty to larceny in April.

She was managing the patient funds trust account at the Meridian Manor nursing facility when a 2012 audit revealed irregularities. An investigation by the Medicaid Fraud Control of the chief state’s attorney’s office found she had written three dozen checks totaling $140,000 that were cashed or deposited into her bank account.

A Waterbury Superior Court judge on Monday sentenced Soules to serve five years of probation and pay full restitution in addition to her prison term.

She is also prohibited from working in the financial or health sectors.
