Female White-Collar Crime Divas-Mordern Day Thieves
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Here is yet another unfortunate tale of an elderly female involvement in crime. The Crime Divas of the day is a 83 year-old British woman, Jean Rogerson from Notting Hill.
Ms. Rogerson was convicted of money laundering, at the writing of this post I have not been able to find out how much time she was given.
As the story is told, Ms. Rogerson went to the bank and deposited $15,000(Euros) in cash from her handbag. An hour later she returned and deposited $62,000(E), which she had in a shopping bag that time. And on a third trip on the same day with the same teller she deposited $44,490(E) for a total of $122,210(E). The teller inquired about the cash and Ms. Rogerson told her, “They give me the money and I give it back.) Of course, we know that set off an alarm in the teller’s mind and she then alerted authorities, who undercover that the activities went back to 1999.
Again here is an elderly woman, Ms. Rogerson who only got on the Crime Diva list because of the nature of the crime. . . white-collar and the money involved. This elderly woman had been living on government benefits all of her life and someone it seems took advantage of her. But the authorities stated that she understood what she was doing so she was therefore charged with the money laundering crime. As I noted above I was unable to find out how much time she was given and due to the fact that the money was for $122,000 (E) I don’t believe she got a lot of time. But for an 83 year-old anytime she has left to live is a lot of time.
It is important that we keep our seniors from being used in this matter, so please have a conversation with one, just in case. As I have and will continue to say you NEVER know who’s committing these crimes.
