WOMAN'S EX-CARETAKER SENTENCED FOR THEFT

A judge sentenced a retired woman's former caretaker Monday to 13 1/2 years in prison for stealing money from her.

Susan Standish Hare, 40, formerly of Medina, was convicted in August of burglary, grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property and forgery.

Hare was accused of stealing $75,000 from a Lyndonville woman in the summer of 2003 and depositing it in a bank account she set up for herself.

Judge James Punch could have sentenced Hare to a maximum of 15 years in prison.

Her husband, 35-year-old Terrance Hare, is serving a five-year sentence on drug charges and a charge of second-degree criminal possession of stolen property.

An investigation showed he cashed a check made out to his wife for $50,000, which he said he later learned was stolen from the retiree.
