JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A Booneville woman has been sentenced to 10 years for a con game she perpetrated upon an elderly victim.

Attorney General Jim Hood, in a news release Wednesday, said Circuit Court Judge Andrew K. Howorth sentenced 48-year-old Sharon Sallie to 10 years for false pretense to run at the same time as a five-year sentence for conspiracy.

Hood says Sallie must serve the sentence day-for-day as a habitual offender. In addition, she was ordered to pay $15,518 in restitution to the victim and court costs.

The victim believed she was helping Sallie and two co-defendants after Sallie asked for a loan that she promised to repay following the settlement of a medical lawsuit. However, Hood’s office said there was no such lawsuit or settlement.
