A GERIATRIC caregiver was yesterday sentenced to five years in prison for stealing more than $107,000 from the bank account of her 80-year-old employer.
Lisa Sedeno, 32, of Couva, withdrew the money six months after she started caring for the elderly woman.
The transactions were done between October 7, 2016 and May 15, 2017. The total of $107,062 was withdrawn without the permission of the victim from the account she shared jointly with her 47-year-old daughter.
Sedeno entered a guilty plea when she appeared before Senior Magistrate Cherril-Anne Antoine in the San Fernando First Criminal Court.
