    A District of Columbia police sergeant has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $40,000 from an 85-year-old woman she was assigned to help.

    Aisha Hackley pleaded guilty in D.C. Superior Court on Monday to first-degree theft from a senior citizen. She must resign from the police department as part of her plea agreement and faces up to 15 years in prison when she is sentenced in October.

    Hackley admitted stealing from the woman after being assigned to investigate suspicious activity on her bank account.

    Prosecutors say Hackley used the woman's personal account information to write checks payable to herself or to her son.

    The victim contacted Bank of America on May 31 after noticing a series of suspicious checks charged against her account.
