BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Buffalo woman could go to prison for stealing more than $71,000 from her father. Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita says 59-year-old Sandra Gilliam pleaded guilty to grand larceny in Erie County Court.
Gilliam admitted to stealing the money between January 2011 and April 2014. Her 84-year-old father was living in an assisted living facility. Sedita says the funds intended for her father’s living expenses consisted of monthly annuity checks and long term care checks which she failed to divulge to his court appointed guardian.
GIlliam could face a maximum of four years in state prison for embezzling funds from her father. She will be sentenced in July.
