Carer Jailed For £20000 Fraud

July 25, 2011

A woman who stole more than £20,000 from a severely disabled man has been sentenced to two years in prison.

Charlanne Pinfield, 38, was the principal carer for Roger La Croix, who is blind, bed-bound and has multiple sclerosis.

The mother-of-three, from Gregory’s Court in Worcester, ran up large debts in Mr La Croix’s name between 2008 and 2010, the city’s crown court heard.

She admitted fraud charges at an earlier hearing.

The court heard she frittered it away the money – stealing £20,400 in total.

At a hearing on 5 July at Worcester Crown Court, she admitted two counts of fraud by abuse of position and one count of dishonestly making false representation to make a gain for self or another.
