Capps was arrested on January 29th by Indiana State Trooper Jason Faulstich after an investigation into a complaint of theft of a credit card by a resident of Miller’s Merry Manor in Plymouth. Further investigation revealed several purchases with the credit card that had been made in the surrounding area. The investigation led him to Capps who worked at Miller’s Merry Manor as a nurse. During the investigation it was discovered that she was in possession of prescription medication that belonged to another resident at Millers.
Pursuant to a plea agreement with the State, Ms. Capps plead guilty to a reduced misdemeanor charge of Conversion.
Deputy Prosecutor, Graham Polando said, “Obviously, the offense involved a serious abuse of a position of trust. However, given her complete cooperation with the police investigation into the incident, her total lack of criminal history, her willingness to make restitution to the victim, her cooperation with the ISNAP (nursing assistance) program, her early indication of her willingness to accept responsibility for her actions, and the nine days she spent in custody, we believe the agreement an appropriate one.”
Pursuant to the agreement, which Senior Judge Palmer accepted without hesitation, Capps received a sentence of one year in the Marshall County Jail, all suspended except the nine days already served and reporting probation. If she were to violate any terms of her probation, the remaining 356 days could be imposed.
