WOMAN GIVEN JAIL IN $10,000 THEFT FROM ELDERLY PATIENT

A personal care aide who stole about $10,000 from an elderly woman client was sentenced Friday by Niagara County Judge Peter L. Broderick Sr.

Eleanor Bergeron, 51, of Pine Avenue, Niagara Falls, was sentenced to 20 weekends in the county jail, 100 hours of community service, five year's probation, and restitution of $10,000 to the victim.

The money was taken from the 74-year-old woman's bank account between December 1998 and March 1999, court papers said. Bergeron had pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of fourth-degree grand larceny after being indicted on a third-degree count.

In other court action:

Franco Richardson, 25, of Calumet Avenue, Niagara Falls, pleaded guilty to fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and will be sentenced in March. Richardson was arrested with cocaine in his possession Nov. 18 in Niagara Falls.

A March 8 sentencing date was set for Charles D. Carson, 26, of Robert Drive, North Tonawanda, who pleaded guilty to a felony count of driving while intoxicated. He was arrested Nov. 1 in North Tonawanda.

Darryl Bagley Jr., 19, of Byrd Avenue, Niagara Falls, pleaded innocent at his arraignment to charges of first-degree robbery, first-degree assault, and fourth-degree criminal mischief. He was accused of robbing a cab driver Nov. 1 by hitting him in the head with a brick several times, and cutting the cord on his radio microphone so he couldn't call for help.
