Man sentenced for stealing elderly woman's money and gambling it away
James Hughes, 53, was sentenced to 3 to 7 years in prison after a jury convicted him of theft in Rockingham County Superior Court on Wednesday. (JAMES A. KIMBLE/Union Leader Correspondent)
A jury convicted Hughes on Oct. 3 of felony theft and unauthorized use of a credit card for withdrawing about $9,000 in Salem between March 2009 and January 2010.
If Hughes allowed a judge to decide the sentence, he could have faced up to 7 ½ to 15 years in state prison on the theft charge alone.
But those were later dropped by prosecutors shortly after Sparrow-Meade died last Dec. 5 at age 84.
