EXCLUSIVE: Health Worker Accused Of Stealing From 92-Year-Old In Hospice Care

By Walt Hunter

RADNOR, Pa., (CBS) -- Health worker Suhailah Judge was hired to provide around the clock care to a dying 92-year-old woman in hospice care, but Radnor Police say instead she victimized the elderly woman using her credit card to steal more than $200 that she put into a phone account so she could talk with a male inmate at Graterford Prison.

In an Exclusive CBS 3 I-Team Report, only Eyewitness News cameras were there as Judge surrendered and was arraigned on numerous counts of theft and other charges.

Chief William Colarulo, who called the allegations "disgusting", credited Detective Chris Four with listening to hours of taped prison phone conversations, before he heard Judge admitting her crimes.

The audio, obtained exclusively by CBS 3, first heard in a story by CBS 3 Investigative Reporter Walt Hunter.

Sadly, Detective Four says, the 92-year-old died in January before she could see the investigation completed with the arrest.

Judge's defense attorney says she hopes the fact that her client has no prior criminal record and the amount allegedly stolen was small will be taken into consideration as the case moves through the justice system.

Meanwhile, police say they are investigating to determine if Judge may have stolen money from any other elderly clients and they ask anyone with information to contact Radnor Police at 610-688-5600.
