Stone's Ex-Maid Jailed for Theft

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sharon Stone's former housekeeper was sentenced to 16 months in prison after pleading no contest to taking pricey handbags, shoes, jewelry and other goods from the actress.

Judge Victoria Chavez also ordered Socorro ``Coco'' Del Carmen Membrano to pay Stone as much as $50,000 in restitution.

Stone, who wasn't in court Tuesday for the case's disposition, has said she was hurt by the actions of the woman she had all but considered a family member.

Membrano, 48, pleaded no contest to a single count of receiving stolen property. Among the items reported taken were dozens of evening gowns, including one worth $20,000.

Authorities said Stone noticed things missing over the years and would occasionally ask Membrano if she knew where they were.

``The housekeeper would say, `You gave that to your sister,' or, `Oh, that's at the cleaners,''' said Deputy District Attorney Wendy E. Segall.

The actress finally learned the truth, authorities said, after other staffers saw the items stuffed into eight garbage bags at Membrano's home.
