LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Lauderdale County Woman is back behind bars after being accused of taking advantage of a man with dementia-like symptoms.

Florence police say Carolyn Watson told the man stories about how she needed money and convinced him to give her more than $16,000 in a three week period.

Earlier this year Lauderdale County Deputies arrested Watson on similar charges.

Investigators say she would pose as a nurse to get into elderly people's homes and steal pills and purses.

She pleaded guilty to those charges.

According to the plea deal, Watson was sentenced to one year in Lauderdale County drug court.

This means Watson will have to stay drug and alcohol free for at least one year, pay restitution, and complete the program

If for some reason she is terminated from the program, the DA said she will be sentenced for the felonies and sent to prison.

With news of her latest arrest clearly violating the plea deal, it appears Watson will face prison time.

As soon as we learn anything more on this case, we'll pass it along on and on air.
