Niece who stole more than $200K from elderly uncle suffering from dementia free from prison in 3 days, her sentencing determines

Chicago Tribune 1 month ago

A Villa Park woman who authorities say illegally took more than $200,000 from an elderly uncle will spend three more days in jail as part of a sentence handed down Thursday in DuPage County.

Sharon Cermak, 63, was sentenced Thursday to 120 days in the county jail, along with three years of probation, by Judge John Kinsella. Cermak pleaded guilty this summer to one count of financial institution fraud between $100,000 and $500,000.

With day for day credit and credit for time already served, Cermak will spend three more days in jail. She was incarcerated 57 days in 2017 before she posted bond.

She will serve the time beginning Oct. 30.

Cermak was charged in 2017 with taking money from her elderly uncle whom authorities say had dementia issues. She had legal authority over his finances and illegally took about $235,000, authorities said. The uncle, a Glen Ellyn resident, died in early 2017.

Cermak used the money to pay her rent and utilities and credit card bills, Assistant State’s Attorney Diane Michalak said. During one 18-month period, Cermak went through $86,000 in cash in addition to money spent on her living expenses, Michalak said.
