Woman ordered to replace $113K she stole from grandfather's Trumbull County estate

Published: Wed, March 26, 2014 @ 2:27 a.m.


A North Ridgeville, Ohio, woman was sentenced Tuesday to six months in the Trumbull County jail after pleading guilty to stealing $112,743 from the estate of her elderly grandfather around the time he died.

Sandy G. Hayton, 49, pleaded guilty earlier in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court to felony theft from an elderly person for removing money from her grandfather’s estate by obtaining a false or forged power of attorney, prosecutors said.

She committed the thefts from April 2009 to June 2010. Her grandfather, of North Bloomfield, was 90 years old when he died in May 2009. He was a U.S. Army veteran of World War II.

Judge Andrew Logan ordered her to make restitution for the stolen funds.

Anybody think she's got, or can get, that kind of money? What are the odds of her making restitution?

She ought to have been made to work all day every day, and her wages garnished until the amount is repaid.

it's refreshing to see a family member stealing the money from a relative instead of a stranger. Way to go Sandy and here's to a bright and prosperous future to ya.

I wonder who the person was that gave her authority. A power of attorney given by the grandfather would have ceased to exist upon his death. Interesting.

Boxerlover, go back and read the article again. It tells you how she obtained the power of attorney.

Sandy is truly a piece of dung.

billdog, don't need to go back and read it again. She obtained a fake/forged POA. In that POA who did she say gave her authority, her grandfather? Which would cease to exist when he died. Sorry I have to spell it out for you.

Okay, SHE FORGED THE DOCUMENT. SHE GAVE HERSELF AUTHORITY ILLEGALLY. Which means she would have to forge her grandfathers signature.
