LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Two Kentucky men have been sentenced to prison in separate cases involving stealing money from older relatives and spending it on themselves.

U.S. Attorney Robert Duncan says in a news release that Paul Anthony Long II was sentenced in federal court in Lexington to three years and six months and John Jerome O’Hara was sentenced to two years.

The statement says both Lexington residents abused their powers of attorney over a relative’s finances and pleaded guilty to fraud charges.

According to their plea agreements, Long took more than $600,000 from his grandfather, while O’Hara took more than $330,000 from his mother.
