CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – A woman faces a felony charge after she allegedly earned $100,000 for unworked hours at a Chesterfield nursing home over parts of the last two years.
St. Louis County prosecutors have charged Cia Hardin, 34, with one count of stealing in excess of $25,000.
According to court documents obtained by FOX 2, Hardin had been employed at the Delmar Gardens nursing home amid allegations of unpaid work. Investigators say she submitted fraudulent time sheets with her supervisor’s forged initials from June 2022 to August 2023.
