A WOMAN was sentenced to 10 months in prison for two counts of fraud by false representation and one count of theft from a person.

Debora Ann Sutton, 51, of Arncliffe Drive, Heelands pleaded guilty to committing these offences between 2004 and 2010 when she appeared at Aylesbury Crown Court today (19/4).

PC Marc Miller, leading the investigation, said: “Sutton was not only in a position of trust but a friend to the 93-year-old vulnerable woman when she fraudulently took thousands of pounds from her, deceiving everyone around her including the victim’s family and wider support network.

“Today’s sentencing is as a result of a lengthy investigation which produced an overwhelming amount of evidence. Sutton pleaded guilty and must now face the consequence of her actions.

“She carried out these particularly callous acts over a period of time and the victim tragically died shortly after she found out the circumstances of what had happened.

“On behalf of Thames Valley Police, I would to take this opportunity to offer our sincere condolences and sympathies to the victim’s family and friends and thank them for their support.

“Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time and I hope that now they will be able to begin to rebuild their lives.”

“I would also like to thank Lovat Fields Retirement Village and Milton Keynes Adult Social Care for bringing this to our attention and assisting us throughout the investigation.”
