LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Dansville woman who admits to forging $2,800 from a 91-year-old woman for whom she was an overnight caregiver is asking to go to prison as soon as possible as even more charges pour in from the south of Livingston County.
Ann Rauber, 41, is already facing down 16 charges, 11 of which are felonies, for stealing $2,800 from the elderly woman she was supposed to be caring for, then allegedly opening fraudulent credit card accounts and checking accounts, and more charges are piling on.
“My client would like to plead guilty to the second indictment [charging creating fraudulent accounts] and would like to go to state prison,” said Rauber’s lawyer, Marcea Clark Tetamore. “She would like to be sentenced and go, she does not want to wait until October.”
Assistant District Attorney Joshua Tonra said that it is possible that a new charge out of Dansville could affect the restitution amount on the second indictment, alleging the creation of fraudulent accounts.
PD Tetamore said that she and the District Attorney’s Office would like to set up a hearing on Sept. 17 to handle the restitution matter.
Rauber has past felony convictions for Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree out of Livingston County court and a Scheme to Defraud out of the Village of Geneseo.
At the time of Rauber’s arrest on the theft charges, Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty credited great teamwork between the Dansville Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office for the successful investigation and arrest of Rauber.
