A woman working as a temporary caretaker is accused of stealing jewelry and later pawning it at a Kennewick shop.
Shanise Dana Jacobsen, 20, of Kennewick, pleaded innocent in Benton County Superior Court to first-degree trafficking in stolen property.
Her trial is scheduled April 7.
Jacobsen filled in taking care of the victim during the permanent caretaker's days off last summer. Prosecutors allege she took several pieces of jewelry and pawned them on separate occasions at Ace Jewelry and Loan.
On July 27, Jacobsen allegedly sold four rings, a chain, a pendant and some earrings, court documents said. She returned to the shop Aug. 16 to sell two rings and a chain.
The victim reportedly was able to identify her items from the transactions.
Jacobsen is out of custody on her own recognizance while awaiting trial.
