A Cortland County woman who previously pleaded guilty to petty larceny in the robbery of residents of an independent living facility is again found guilty of victimizing elderly residents.
District Attorney Patrick Perfetti says Meghann White was convicted of impersonation and theft.
In a statement, Perfetti said “This particular defendant had and continued a pattern of preying on elderly citizens and using her ability to emotionally manipulate vulnerable circumstances to her own advantage.”
White had been convicted in 2018 after pleading guilty to robbing residents of Friendship House and serving probation after paying restitution.
White allegedly violated probation by using the identities of two elderly people and fraudulently creating a power of attorney, which she was not authorized to hold under the previous conviction.
The district attorney said White may have made illegal purchases totaling $3,210.
White was sentenced on February 23 to 2 consecutive prison terms of 1 to 3 years.
