South Carolina Bookkeeper Stole From Nursing Home
While working at the J.F. Hawkins Nursing Home between 2005 and 2009, Tina Lewis Clinton worked as a bookkeeper that had her regularly handling the deposits of the facility. During that time, she would regularly make thefts from the nursing home by cashing Social Security and military veteran’s checks nursing home residents’ and diverting the money for her personal use.
Clinton also didn’t report the thefts on her taxes, filing false returns at the same time, Greenville Online reported.
After the revelation of her scam, she was eventually arrested and put to trial where she pleaded guilty for embezzlement and filing false tax returns.
Because the deposits are covered by a bonding company, none of the nursing home patients lost any money.
