Auburn woman sentenced to prison for burglary, ID theft

-A +A
An Auburn woman is beginning a prison term after pleading no contest to two felonies of second-degree burglary and identification theft. Judge Larry Gaddis sentenced Sherri Selena Shifflett, 42, Thursday to four years and eight months in prison after pleading to the felonies and admitting to two prior prison terms, according to Lisa Botwinik, the prosecutor on the case. The charges stem from a case in which Shifflett allegedly cashed a fraudulent check from one of her elderly housecleaning clients in Folsom. After the case began, other victims came forward. Botwinik said after the prison sentence Shifflett could face up to three years of parole depending on her actions. Gaddis also ordered Shifflett to pay an estimate of just under $3,000 in restitution fees to the victims. The amount could go up if victims discover additional losses, Botwinik said. Botwinik declined to comment on the outcome of the case. Shifflett’s attorney, Chris Van Meir, was unavailable for comment as of press time. ~Bridget Jones
