A Williamsville woman was sentenced to six months in jail and will be on probation for five years after stealing nearly $300,000 from her mother between 2012 and 2015.
Sandra Krok, 55, also was ordered to make full restitution of the theft by Erie County Court Judge Thomas P. Franczyk.
Krok, who had power of attorney to her widowed mother, took the money from her mother’s bank account without her mother’s knowledge.
Krok pleaded guilty to third-degree grand larceny last September.
Officials said Krok told them she took the cash to pay college tuition for her daughters. Records suggest she used it to travel and buy “luxury items,” officials said.
