PHILADELPHIA, Miss.–A piece of plastic can me mighty tempting when it’s backed by money in the bank. Rosemary Stribling, 37, of Philadelphia, is accused of taking the debit card that belonged to a vulnerable person under her care, and swiping for things Stribling wanted for herself.
She turned herself in this week after she was indicted by a Neshoba County grand jury.
Attorney Gen. Jim Hood said in a press release that Stribling was a paid caregiver and stole behind the victim’s back. She could get 10 years in prison if she’s convicted.
Hood did not say whether the victim was an elderly person, only saying the victim was a vulnerable adult, meaning that person could not care for themselves and trusted Stribling to do so.
