Woman pleads guilty to financial exploitation

CLINTON — A former caregiver at a Skyline Center group home pleaded guilty to financially exploiting two residents.

Anitra D. Enriquez, 36, 824 12th Ave. South, pleaded guilty to two counts of dependant adult abuse, financial exploitation and received fines of $100 and $65.

According to court documents, Enriquez served as a Skyline caregiver at a group home at 272 36th Ave. North from July 2011 to Jan. 7. Clinton Police Officer Anthony Stone was called to the Skyline Center, 2600 N. Fourth St., for a report of theft at 2:45 p.m. on Jan. 16, according to the affidavit.

Samantha Kress, a Skyline employee, reported strange withdraws on the bank accounts of two dependent adults living at the group home at 272 36th Ave. North, according to the affidavit. According to court documents, Kress found a $20 withdraw from one of the resident’s accounts at 6:08 p.m. on Dec. 2 at an ATM at Clinton National Bank, 1912 N. Second St. Kress told Stone that she confirmed it was Enriquez who made the withdrawal by viewing the bank’s ATM surveillance tape, according to the affidavit. Kress also reported an $80 withdrawal from another resident at 10:48 p.m. on Dec. 6 at an ATM at US Bank, 2300 N. Third St., according to court documents.

According to court documents, caregivers have access to residents’ accounts for dependent adult care. However, Kress said a log and receipts are used to track purchases and transactions and there were no record of the two transactions, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, Stone went to Enriquez’s home and asked her to come to the police station to talk about the thefts. During the interview, Enriquez admitted to Stone that she made the withdrawals from the victims’ bank accounts without their permission to pay her bills and for gas, according to the affidavit.
