UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WJZ) — A Prince George’s County caregiver was convicted Thursday for stealing tens of thousands of dollars from a patient, according to officials.
Paula Medley, 50, was sentenced to 10 years in prison and five years of supervised probation.
Medley was previously found guilty by a Prince George’s County jury of obtaining property from a vulnerable adult between the amount of $10,000 to $100,000, theft scheme of $10,000 to $100,000 and identity fraud.
In 2012, Geraldine Jackson, 88, was wheelchair bound for mobility. She had hired Medley to be her live-in caregiver.
Between 2012 and 2015, Medley had stolen money from Jackson and fraudulently used her credit card.
