BUFFALO, NY – A Clarence woman pleaded guilty before Erie County Court Judge Susan Eagan for grand larceny after being caught bilking a 94-year-old client out of $35,300.

31-year-old Brigid M. Buseman, while working as a home health aide, falsified personal checks that she obtained for payment from a 94-year-old client in the Town of Amherst between February 7, 2019 and September 24, 2019, the Erie County Prosecutor charged.

“A comparison between timecard records and cashed checks revealed that the defendant fraudulently obtained $35,300.00 in excess payments from the victim,” District Attorney John Flynn said. “Buseman faces a maximum of 7 years in prison when she is sentenced on Friday, June 10, 2022 at 9:30 a.m. She continues to remain released on her own recognizance.”
