A Pennsylvania housekeeper has been found guilty of stealing vintage sports memorabilia, coins and jewelry from some of her clients.
After a week-long trial, a Montgomery County jury deliberated about six hours before reaching a verdict in the trail of 46-year-old Kimberley Williams.
She had been charged in several cases including the theft of thousands of dollars in vintage baseball memorabilia belonging to Adam Kaplan, a Wynnewood resident who suffered from serious health problems.
Williams was found guilty of stealing items that had been given to Kaplan by Amos Strunk, a neighbor who played professional baseball from 1908-1924. The items sold for over $61,000 at auction after Williams said she had inherited them from Kaplan, who died in 2008, and consigned them to auction.
"This defendant is a despicable person who preyed on vulnerable victims," said Assistant District Attorney Bradford Richman.
Williams is now in the Montgomery County Correctional Center and faces a lengthy jail term, according to a local news story.
