On Monday, a 45-year-old Royersford woman was sentenced in the Chester County Justice Center to one to three years in state prison for using a stolen Girl Scout Troop debit card to pay her lawyer $525. Shelly Gaugler was also ordered by Chester County Judge Ann Marie Wheatcraft to serve four years of probation following her prison term. Gaugler was convicted in absentia of using a Girl Scout Troop debit card in 2019 to charge $525 to a law firm in Pottstown to pay her bankruptcy attorney. The defendant failed to appear for her scheduled trial after receiving notice to attend and she fled to Virginia. Gaugler was convicted of identity theft, access device fraud, and receiving stolen property.
In other news, the Pennsylvania Department of Health announced it is suspending operations at Delaware County Memorial Hospital on Monday. In a statement issued Friday night, Delaware County officials said the decision to close the hospital is because of inadequate staffing. Just last month, a judge granted a temporary injunction preventing Crozer Health from closing the hospital and turning it into a behavioral health facility. The county said it is now exploring all legal options to try to keep the hospital open.
