Lucia Faria was working at the Country Villa retirement home.
Prosecutors say she stole nearly $70,000 from residents and the home’s owners.
Faria claimed her brother was sick, and she needed money to go home to see him.
She promised to pay the money back, but instead spent all of it at Hollywood Slots. Faria admitted to her crime in court.
Assistant District Attorney Greg Campbell says he hopes to deport Faria back to Portugal, after she has served her time.
