'S/F blond' seeks suspended sentence

The Associated Press

        MOUNT GILEAD, Ohio — A judge has banned a woman from placing personal ads after she stole $157,000 from a 71-year-old man she met through an ad.

        Angela Harter, 31, also was ordered to stay away from any man older than 50 who is not a relative and to make restitution to the family of Harold Wickiser within three months. She already has returned $125,000.

        Ms. Harter pleaded guilty to stealing from Mr. Wickiser, who died 13 days after hearing her admit she'd taken his life savings.

        They began their relationship after Mr. Wickiser answered an ad that said: “Beautiful young blond searching for older successful W/M (white male) to share the finer things in life.”

        Judge Hall told Ms. Harter she faces six months in the county jail if she does not repay the money within three months.
