Kizzy Fawcett, carer who stole from elderly in Beverley, now faces jail after failing to do community work
A HOME help who stole thousands of pounds from elderly people with dementia now faces jail.
Kizzy Fawcett, 35, stole from the vulnerable people she was supposed to be caring for. Due to their memory problems, they could not remember her taking them to the bank to withdraw cash.
She was given a 12-month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to carry out 280 hours of unpaid work in the community.
But in two-and-a-half months Fawcett has only completed 12 hours of unpaid work and has not co-operated with the Probation Service.

Prosecutor Stephen Robinson told Hull Crown Court: "A summons was served on her on December 13 and there has been no response.
"There has been a theme of non-co-operation."
Now, Judge Mark Bury has issued a warrant for her arrest.
He said: "She is at risk of an immediate prison sentence upon her arrest."
Fawcett was described by a previous judge as "despicable" for stealing thousands of pounds from the elderly.
Mother-of-three Fawcett worked for Independent Home Living in Beverley, where she was sent to the homes of dementia sufferers as a home help.
Despite leaving her job at the firm, she continued to care for her victims and was employed privately.
Over two years, she stole expensive jewellery and more than £12,000 in cash.
Fawcett, of Riding Fields Square in Beverley, stole cash from one woman's purse and took some of her victims to the bank to withdraw cash, knowing they would not remember.
The money was spent on phone top-up cards and takeaways.
Fawcett was caught when Lockings Solicitors was given power of attorney over one victim's affairs.
They discovered large sums had been withdrawn from her account.
When they investigated further and contacted the bank, Fawcett was seen on CCTV taking the woman to the bank to withdraw funds amounting to more than £6,000 from her account.
Fawcett stole £150 from the purse of another woman and £375, which had been given to her to purchase a trophy for a junior football team.
When she was arrested, detectives also found cannabis and amphetamines at her home.
She pleaded guilty to 11 thefts and asked the judge to take a further 18 offences of theft into consideration.
