Former nanny convicted of stealing more than $30,000 from two families
In 2012, a nanny from Salem, MA, pleaded guilty to stealing from two families who had hired her off the website Sittercity. One of the families discovered several valuable pieces of jewelry were missing. She was hired by another family who also discovered jewelry and electronics missing from their home. Instead of jail, she was offered probation and a condition that she pays restitution to the families. Instead, after leaving court, she was arrested on a shoplifting charge.
