Aide admits stealing $15K from director Shyamalan

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — A once-trusted aide to "The Sixth Sense" director M. Night Shyamalan (SHAH'-mah-lahn) faces possible prison time after racking up $15,000 in unauthorized charges on a company credit card.

Shyamalan's former house manager Selma Nolan Cody pleaded guilty this week to a single count of theft by unlawful taking. The third-degree felony carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 4.

The Daily Local News of West Chester reports (http://bit.ly/1uvP2z5) the 34-year-old Cody was accused of making 195 personal purchases from Amazon, Netflix and other outlets on a card Shyamalan and his psychologist wife gave to her for house-related items.

The Shyamalans hired Cody to manage their rural Chester County home in suburban Philadelphia in June 2012. She left last year.
