Former patient care assistant Nakeshia Brown has been sentenced to 60 months in prison.
Nakeshia Brown, 30, a former patient care assistant at Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospital, has been sentenced to 60 months in prison for bank fraud and aggravated identity theft.
"Thirty-six months of the 60 months sentence is for the bank fraud conviction, while the remaining 24 months is the mandatory sentence for an aggravated identity theft conviction which by law must be served consecutive to the bank fraud conviction sentence," according to the Office of Inadequate Security.
"Brown admitted she used her employment to steal printouts of patient medical records, referred to as 'face sheets,' which included the patients name, date of birth, Social Security number, address, employment information and other personal identifying information," the article states. "Brown then used that information to apply for credit cards without the patients consent."
