A rural Scottsbluff woman who was found guilty of exploiting a vulnerable elderly woman by forging names on real estate documents and trying to sell the associated property has been sentenced to prison.
In January, a jury convicted 47-year-old Londa Neal on charges of 2nd Degree Forgery over $5,000 and Attempted Theft by Taking with Value over $5,000.
Court documents allege the name and signature of the victim were forged onto a 2021 quitclaim deed that would transfer joint interest in a property on Page Drive to Londa Neal.
On Wednesday, District Judge Andrea Miller sentenced Neal to 4 to 10 years on the Forgery charge and 2-3 years on the Attempted Theft by taking charge.
The two counts will run concurrently, and she received credit for 5 days already served.
