Psychic frightens child into stealing in order to remove curse

Psychic said stealing jewelry would remove curse, sheriff says – latimes.com.

A psychic was arrested by Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials for allegedly scaring a 12-year-old girl into stealing $10,000 in jewelry.

During “psychic readings,” the suspect, Jackeline Lopez, of Palmdale, allegedly told the girl “horrible things” would happen to her unless she stole the jewelry from her parents.

Occult paraphernalia and curses color this story. More from an article here. The child is not being charged with a crime. Authorities are concerned that Lopez may have preyed on additional children victims.
