Celeb Housekeeper Pleads Guilty To Theft

A Polish housekeeper has tearfully admitted stealing from a string of celebrities including ROBERT DE NIRO and BOSTON LEGAL star CANDICE BERGEN.

The maid broke down in court yesterday (08FEB06) as she pleaded guilty to grand larceny, identity theft and forgery. Her confession will see her sentenced to just one to three years in prison, after striking a plea deal last month (JAN06).

LUCYNA TURYK-WAWRYNOWICZ, 35, stole a pair of diamond earrings belonging to De Niro's wife, GRACE HIGHTOWER worth a staggering $95,500 (GBP53,055).

Last August (05), the housekeeper maintained in court she only stole the jewellery because Hightower was mean to her.

Bergen meanwhile, had a leather jacket and cameras taken from her home.

Lead investigator Detective RICHARD KENNY has vowed to return Turyk-Wawrynowicz's haul to the victims immediately.

The disgraced maid also confessed to the judge that she stole the identity of an eight-year-old girl to obtain residency and work papers in the US.
