A mother who admitted stealing more than $25,000 from her teenage daughter has pleaded guilty to the charge.
Prosecutors said Shana Nadeau, 23, spent more than a decade stealing from her two children and friends and taking credit cards and money from her mother.
The mother’s lawyers had asked for a 15-year prison term.
Nadeau was a certified nurse-midwife at a private nursing home in New Hampshire where she was employed by the county in the summer of 2017, according to court documents.
The state said her job required her to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week and she used her cell phone, tablet and computers.
Nadesau said she was “doing something that was right” when she went to her daughter’s home on March 2, 2019, to collect the check, according the state.
The daughter told her she had been using the money to pay her bills and the mother said she never saw her daughter again.
She admitted the charge on Monday in a court in Manchester, New Hampshire, where Nadeaus was charged with one count of grand theft.
She had pleaded guilty on March 18 to a lesser charge.
Nadedau’s lawyers have said Nadeaux was never married and the case was “a money-laundering scheme,” according to the Associated Press.
