A Jamestown woman is now facing 10 years in prison after admitting she scammed an elderly couple she was paid to care for.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, 36-year-old Alicia Wilson was working as an in-home care aid, when she applied for credit cards in the names of the elderly couple.

Wilson admits she then used the cards online, at stores in both Jamestown and Erie, Pennsylvania and also withdrew cash from local banks.

According to investigators, losses totaled more than $25,000.

Wilson is set to be sentenced in June.
