LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati woman has pled guilty to stealing from houses she was supposed to be cleaning.

Linda Price, 59, of Cincinnati, pled guilty on Tuesday to two counts of misuse of a credit card and one count of forgery.

Price was sentenced to serve a year in prison for her crimes and ordered to pay restitution to her victim.

Prosecutors say Price depicted herself as a helpful cleaning woman who offered to clean and do chores for people. The same people Price claimed to be helping, she was stealing from.

Last year, Price was convicted of stealing from homeowners whom she had been working for. While that case was pending Price offered to assist an 80 year old woman who was recovering from a medical condition. Instead of helping the woman Price used her credit cards to steal over $3,000.

"Ms. Price was taking advantage of people who trusted her and tried to help her," Warren County Prosecutor Rachel Hutzel stated. "Her sentence sends a message that Warren County will not put up with people taking advantage of others."
