A Clearwater woman charged with stealing jewelry and money from a woman who employed her as a home health care nurse has been convicted of grand theft and ordered to serve three years' probation. Eileen Turner, 33, was arrested in August after Christine Vasilakis told police that Turner stole an emerald ring and diamond earrings. Turner was charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen property and defrauding a pawnbroker.
Police said Turner admitted stealing the jewelry then pawning the ring for $200. Police found the earrings in her bedroom. Her sentence will run concurrently with another punishment for violating probation. She was on probation for writing bad checks, according to records. Turner, who pleaded guilty to grand theft, also was ordered to pay $400 in restitution to Vasilakis.
