Ohio couple sentenced for stealing from disabled man; woman pretended to also have disability

A northeast Ohio woman has admitted she pretended to be disabled in order to befriend a developmentally disabled man and steal from him.

Thirty-six-year-old Carol Hulett of Akron was sentenced to four years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to burglary, forgery and theft from the disabled. She was sentenced to an additional nine months for violating probation.

Hulett's husband, Shaun Hulett, pleaded guilty to burglary in the same case and was sentenced to two years in prison.

Prosecutors said Carol Hulett pretended to be disabled and eventually befriended a 60-year-old disabled man her husband had noticed riding the bus. Prosecutors said she convinced the man to cash three of his paychecks and give her the money.

Shaun Hulett is still facing charges in an alleged purse-snatching incident.
