Woman faces charges in theft of priest’s wallet

| February 11, 2012

RACINE — A 40-year-old Milwaukee woman arrested in October made her initial appearance in circuit court on Thursday for allegedly using the credit card of a local Roman Catholic priest.

Amanda McGettrick faces six counts of felony ID theft as a party to the crime. If she is convicted of all six charges, she faces a maximum penalty of 36 years in prison or a $60,000 fine, or both.

The criminal complaint alleges that she was one of four people who stole credit cards, bank cards, and gift cards throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Racine County prosecutors accuse her of using the priest’s stolen credit card to make purchases in Milwaukee County.

Her job, according to the complaint, was to use cards which had been stolen by other members of the ring. McGettrick allegedly used the priest’s cards to buy gas and several hundred dollars’ worth of gift cards, and one of her companions bought groceries, the complaint said.
