Former Albany Med employee rejects plea deal in ring theft case
A former Albany Medical Center employee has rejected a plea deal in a theft case.
Caitlin Mullaney is accused of taking a ring off a sleeping patient in the emergency room.
The plea deal would have sent Mullaney to prison for up to three years.
She was working as a patient care technician in the emergency room when she took the ring back in July, police said.
The patient was sleeping on a stretcher.
It appears the case is now headed to trial.
