ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A nurses' assistant has pleaded no contest to charges she slipped the wedding bands off elderly veterans at a Roanoke care center and then sold them at pawn shops.
The Roanoke Times (http://bit.ly/QO6Ot0) reports that Brittney Heather Cook of Rocky Mount entered her plea Monday in Circuit Court. Another assistant, Ashley Michelle Sweeney of Ferrum, previously pleaded guilty to four counts of receiving and selling stolen property.
Security footage and paperwork showed that the two hocked the jewelry at a fraction of its appraised value of $4,650.
Several of the victims, all in their 70s and 80s, were suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's. The thefts occurred in January at the Virginia Veterans Care Center.
Each 23-year-old defendant faces a maximum penalty of 120 years in prison at sentencing in October.
