CNA charged for reportedly stealing patient’s credit card

MOUNT PLEASANT — A 22-year-old certified nursing assistant has been charged after reportedly stealing her patient’s credit card.

Haley R. Christman, of the 30 block of South Newman Road, was reported by her patient after more than $2,000 of unaccounted charges were racked up on her credit card, according to the criminal complaint.

The patient’s bank reportedly told police that 75 transactions were made on Amazon between Oct. 19 and Oct. 24 totaling $2,398.04.

Christman was believed to be the only person who could have accessed the card and had apologized to the patient over text for use of the card, the complaint said.

When questioned by police, Christman reportedly said that she did not know that the credit card info was still in her computer after she ordered Panera Bread for the patient.

Police asked how she could have thought she had the funds to purchase the amount of merchandise that she did, and Christman was not able to provide an explanation, according to the complaint.

Christman faces one felony charge for personal identity theft and one misdemeanor charge for theft by acquisition of a credit card. She is scheduled for an adjourned initial appearance at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 5 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave.
