MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — State prosecutors say a southern New Jersey woman has admitted to laundering money in a scheme that stole millions from the clients of a senior care company.
The state Attorney General’s Office says Sondra Steen pleaded guilty under a deal in Mays Landing to conspiring with her sister to steal from the clients of A Better Choice.
The 60-year-old Linwood woman helped her sister run the company, which prosecutors say offered services to wealthy elderly clients with no immediate family. Services included errand assistance and help with paying bills.
Authorities say Steen became their primary caregiver and a lawyer helped them draft wills and powers of attorney. The group then used that to steal more than $2.7 million over ten years.
Steen faces up to 10 years in prison.
