Woman gets jail time for stealing from 64-year-old man

January 28, 2019

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who drained $40,000 from the bank account of a 64-year-old man she was caring for has been sent to jail.

Thirty-five-year-old Crystal Allison was sentenced to serve 60 days in jail last week. The Sun Chronicle reports she previously pleaded guilty to larceny and will serve two months in jail for a one-year sentence.

She will also pay about $2,400 in restitution. The victim, an Attleboro man, has since died.

Court documents say Allison had known the victim since she was 16.

She was arrested in March after police obtained surveillance photos from a Citizens Bank branch linking her to the missing funds. The bank had reimbursed the man’s account, and can also file suit to recoup its loss.
