A Choctaw Lake woman was arraigned Friday, Jan. 24, on identity theft and forgery charges for allegedly using a false name to obtain a nursing job at a London extended care facility.
Danyelle R. Scheurell, 35, 1060 E. Choctaw Dr., is facing one count of forgery and one count of identity theft, stemming from Nov. 25, 2013 incidents at The Madison House on Keny Boulevard. Both charges are fifth-degree felonies.
Madison County Common Pleas Judge Eamon Costello appointed Jennifer Hitt to represent Scheurell at an April 17 trial and released the woman on house arrest with electronic monitoring at the request of assistant prosecutor Nick Adkins.
Adkins said Scheurell uses multiple aliases and is currently in a drug diversion program in Pickaway County for forgery and insurance fraud.
According to Adkins, Scheurell is a former registered nurse. Her license is currently under suspension.
She is accused of using the name and license number of another nurse on a Madison House employment application. Similar information is readily available on the Internet, Adkins said.
Within two days, administrators at The Madison House discovered Scheurell’s deception, fired the woman and contacted authorities, Adkins added.
