(5/1/14) A central Wisconsin woman is in jail for stealing a dementia patient's credit card at a nursing home where she used to work.

 34-year-old Crystal Schillinger of Spencer had pleaded guilty to Wood County charges of felony theft and identity theft.  She was ordered to pay nearly three-thousand dollars in restitution, plus almost 800-dollars in fines and court costs.  Her jail term runs for 30 days with work release privileges.  Schillinger was also given four years of probation.  Prosecutors said she took the dementia patient's credit card last July to pay utility and veterinary bills.  Schillinger was employed at the facility until late October.
