Woman Steals From Elderly Mother's Bank Account

A Toowoomba court has heard how an 83-year-old mum had $26,000 stolen from her by her daughter over an 18-month period.

The woman’s 56-year-old daughter was found guilty of stealing the cash from her mother’s pension account taking up to $500 a fortnight.  The theft left the pensioner with just $394 to survive on for 2 weeks.

She plead guilty before the court and was handed a 2-year sentence, suspended for three years. 

She was not ordered to pay back the money due to her limited income as a cleaner.
