12 - 06 - 2013 Bellefonte woman to serve jail time for stealing from father
[CDT] - A Bellefonte woman who stole $140,000 in cash from her elderly father-in-law who suffered from dementia will spend at least five months in Centre County jail. 51-y/o Jennifer Lynne Day, was sentenced Monday to serve 10 months to 2 years in county jail. But Centre County Judge Bradley P. Lunsford said the woman could spend five months on home detention for pleading guilty in the case and sparing the family a trial, prosecutors said. Prosecutors say Day took the the money from her father-in-lawâs mobile home in December 2009 on the day he was moved into an assisted living facility. She used the money to buy 5 vehicles, including one for each of her children. She also bought electronics, 2 snow blowers, a lawn mower, and other items.
