CBS in Dallas reports:
A woman who stole thousands of dollars from North Texas nursing home patients and fast food customers and employees will face the longest identity theft sentence in Dallas County history.
It is often said that authorities try to ‘send a message’ with the sentences they hand down. Monday Furnioes Parker received a 38-year prison sentence for felony ID theft.
During the hearing Monday, a number of children of Alzheimer’s patients at the C.C. Young Retirement Community in Dallas took the stand. The men and women testified that they saw their parent’s names tarnished by Parker, who worked at the home as a retirement aid.
