Couple from Texas to be sentenced Tuesday for fraud

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.(KELO)- It’s a case of the elderly scamming the elderly.

82-year old Richard Spry, and 75-year old Susan Spry of Texas will be sentenced Tuesday for stealing over a half-million dollars from South Dakotans.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says the state is on the lookout for elder abuse, and is ready to help.

The Sprys face up to 26 years in prison after being convicted of the crime earlier this year.
