A Valley woman is wearing her wedding ring again after her former caregiver was sentenced for stealing it.  

In an emotional meeting Tuesday, Scheryl Silvio was reunited with her stolen jewelry, and personally thanked the Arizona attorney general and the special agent who worked the case.

"They felt betrayed, and they felt abused by this person," said Special Agent Ronald Davis. "She said that her husband gave that to her in Italy almost 50 years ago and he's not around anymore so she really got emotional."

The state Attorney General's Office announced last month that Mary Louise Gonzalez would serve two and a half years in prison. She pleaded guilty in December to forgery and trafficking in stolen property.

Prosecutors say the 57-year-old Gonzalez was a home health worker for a company that receives Medicaid funding. Authorities say a total of $29,680 was stolen from at least five patients. 

Several pieces of jewelry were returned to Silvio. Her items were stolen about two years ago but had to be held as the case was litigated.  

"Where a thief is put in prison and you're able to return property that means so much to someone, you can't put a price tag on that," said Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich.
