St. Louis, MO – De’Janay Noldon pled guilty to charges of mail fraud and identity theft. Noldon appeared today before United States District Judge Henry E. Autrey.

 

According to court documents, between February 2016 and May 2016, Noldon was employed as a certified nurse’s assistant caregiver with Seniors Health Care (SHC) in Webster Groves, Missouri. Noldon used her position as a caregiver to gain access to an elderly victim’s personal information and used the victim’s personal identification information to obtain open lines of credit that Noldon used to purchase merchandise at stores, make online purchases, and pay personal bills for Noldon and her family and friends. Noldon also fraudulently accessed an Edward Jones account belonging to that victim and initiated several money transfers in an attempt to steal the victim’s savings. The investigation has thus far revealed that Noldon defrauded 13 elderly individuals and six financial institutions. The total loss amount is approximately $30,000.00.

 

Noldon, St. Louis County, pled guilty to one count of mail fraud and one count of aggravated identity theft. Sentencing has been set for June 27, 2017.

 

Mail fraud carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000 and aggravated identity theft carries a two year mandatory consecutive to any other term of imprisonment. In determining the actual sentences, a judge is required to consider the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, which provide recommended sentencing ranges.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Shrewsbury Police Department. Assistant United States Attorney Jennifer Roy is handling the case for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
