Judge sentences housekeeper in exploitation case

(The following is a press release from the Mississippi Attorney General's office.)

A Philadelphia housekeeper is going to prison after pleading guilty to one count of exploitation of a vulnerable person, announced Attorney General Jim Hood today.

Rosemary Stribling also known as Rosemary Carter, 39, appeared before Judge Marcus Gordon in Neshoba County Circuit Court Monday to be sentenced on charges she exploited the elderly victim for which she was hired to clean house.   Stribling admitted to taking money from the victims accounts to make purchases which resulted in a financial loss to the victim of approximately $2,006.56.  As a result, Stribling was sentenced to eight years in custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections, six years suspended with two years  to serve.  She was also ordered to pay full restitution to the victim and some fines.  

“I hope this case serves as a warning that anyone found to be victimizing our most vulnerable residents will be held accountable,” said Attorney General Hood.  

This case was investigated by Shannon Spence and prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Marvin Sanders with the Vulnerable Adults Unit of the Attorney General's Public Integrity Division.
