Addict sentenced to counseling after fraudulent use credit cards
May 18, 2017
A Gardnerville Ranchos woman who fraudulently used her parents' credit card will spend 30 days in jail and attend counseling.
Jennifer A. Alexander, 35, was arrested in November 2016 after her parents reported she'd stolen a credit card. Alexander, who has a history of drug use, had used the credit card to purchase nearly $1,000 in gift cards and cigarettes at the Grant Avenue Walmart.
She was sentenced to 32 months in prison, with parole eligibility after 12 months. That sentence was suspended, and instead Alexander will serve jail time, attend mental health court and mental health and substance abuse counseling.
"The mental health issues you have are real — I understand that," Judge Tod Young told her Tuesday in Douglas County District Court. "But they don't justify your actions."
