An Oxnard woman pleaded not guilty last month to multiple counts of identity theft involving two separate thefts from elderly victims. Rachelle Farala, who acted as a caretaker for the victims, is charged with felony financial elder abuse, ID theft and forgery. She is also charged with misdemeanor theft from an elder and misdemeanor forgery charges.
