A judge sentenced one-time New Jersey equestrian Jane E. Ervin and her husband to prison for bilking her ailing mother out of $271K.

Ervin’s 89-year-old victim was suffering from dementia, depression, and anxiety while her daughter kept her from paying her bills. Staff at the assisted living facility resorted to dressing her in donated clothing.

Instead, Ervin used her mother’s funds to put a deposit on a BMW in 2015, according to the prosecutor. She also went on a vacation during the investigation.

Jane Ervin’s husband Albert Ferrara also pleaded guilty and received the same sentence. He is a retired Philadelphia police officer.
