A Fallon man who pleaded guilty to exploitation of an elderly person over 60 was sentenced Tuesday in District Court.
Crash Corrigan Streavel received 43 months to 16 years in prison for stealing about $250,000 from Myrl and Maie Nygren.
According to Deputy District Attorney Ben Shawcroft, Streavel was a caregiver for the Nygrens and then took control of their finances. Streavel paid himself, added his name to a credit card account and wrote checks to himself in the their names and took out cash advances.
As part of the sentence, Judge David Huff ordered Streavel to sign over the deed to the Idaho property, the title to the SUV and any remaining money in his bank account to Maie, 82. Myrl died of natural causes in the spring.
“This is a terrible crime to take advantage of elderly people,” Huff said. “I take this very seriously.”
