Auburn woman who allegedly stole elder’s identity facing trial?

-A +A
An Auburn woman charged with a variety of felony counts, including identity theft from an elder, could be heading to trial. Sherri Selena Shifflett, 42, is charged with multiple counts of identity theft, one count of second-degree commercial burglary, two counts of forgery, one count of grand theft, two counts of embezzlement, fraud, identity theft from an elder and one count of receiving stolen property, all felonies. The charges stem from an incident where Shifflett allegedly cashed a fraudulent check from one of her elderly Folsom housecleaning clients. Shifflett was arrested on Dec. 22. At a late January hearing Kyle Jibson, the prosecutor for the case, submitted an amended criminal complaint that added the additional charges from other alleged victims to Shifflett’s case. Shifflett is scheduled for an early status conference at 8:30 a.m. Monday in Auburn’s Placer County Jail courtroom. She is scheduled for a trial assignment conference at 8:30 a.m. March 25 in Roseville’s Bill Santucci Justice Center Dept. 33 courtroom. The conference could determine the date of Shifflett’s preliminary hearing, according to Art Campos, spokesman for the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. As of Friday Shifflett remained in custody in Placer County Jail and was ineligible for bail. ~Bridget Jones
