Nanny gets prison time for stealing identity

background check due to her 35 previous arrests, yet this deceit came to light when she was suspected of stealing from the family for who she worked. Vaccaro, 42, of Chili pleaded guilty Thursday to two counts of first-degree identity theft, a felony. She tearfully apologized. “I won’t ever do anything like that again,” she said. Monroe County Court Judge Victoria M. Argento said Vaccaro helped herself by taking responsibility. “It certainly doesn’t excuse your conduct but at least that’s a first step,” Argento said. Seeking to hire a nanny to care for their two young children when they opened an automotive business, Nick and Chrissie LaBorde interviewed Vaccaro in November 2009 after finding her online. Vaccaro, who claimed to be a registered nurse, gave them the name and Social Security number of her cousin, DeRosa, without DeRosa’s knowledge. The name came back clean in a background check. After three months employed, Vaccaro was suspected of stealing a $25 Walmart gift card and the web of lies was discovered. Assistant District Attorney Mark Monaghan said Vaccaro’s greatest offense was a breach of trust the LaBordes gave her by allowing her into their home to care for their children. “When you hire someone for this type of employment, there’s a great deal of trust involved, and Ms. Vaccaro willingly violated that trust,” he said. Vaccaro’s lawyer, Assistant Public Defender Amanda Oren, said her client wouldn’t disagree with that assessment.]]>
