Batavia woman gets probation for stealing from elderly mom

A 44-year-old Batavia woman convicted of stealing more than $20,000 from her mother in 2009 and 2010 recently was sentenced to probation and community service, according to Kane County court records.

Monica Ogen, of the 0-99 block of North Mallory Drive, was convicted over the summer of financial exploitation of an elderly person, a felony.

Judge Susan Clancy Boles sentenced Ogen this month to four years of conditional discharge, which is a form of probation, and 160 hours of community service, records show. Ogen also must pay $8,070 to the estate of her mother, who died in 2012.

According to prosecutors, Ogen used the money to buy clothes and go to restaurants and bars. She once dropped nearly $2,300 on flooring at Home Depot as well, authorities said.

If Ogen violates her probation, she could be resentenced to up to seven years in prison.

Ogen confessed under oath to her actions and wrote an apology letter to her mother, prosecutors said.

I love it that she is also doing community service and restitution. It should be the same in every case of theft.
