Former relief nurse at the San Mateo Medical Center pleads no contest to faking time cards
February 12, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

An extra help relief nurse at the San Mateo Medical Center accused of submitting 265 hours worth of time cards for nearly a year’s worth of work she didn’t perform pleaded no contest Tuesday to misdemeanor grand theft.

Regina Nyanjia Lyimo, 37, opted to settle the case just as an estimated six-day jury trial was about to begin on two counts. The terms of the negotiated deal were not immediately available. She had originally been charged with 14 felony counts of embezzlement stemming from her 10 months of employment at the county’s public hospital but they were later consolidated into just the two.

Between November 2009 and September 2010, Lyimo received $14,573.65 for 265 hours worth of work she claimed. However, prosecutors say she did not actually work any of those hours noted on the time cards.

Lyimo, who is free from custody on $50,000 bail, will be sentenced May 21.
