Booneville resident going to prison for con game against elderly victim

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Sharon Sallie, 48, of Booneville, is going to prison for a con game she perpetrated upon an elderly victim. Sallie was found guilty by a Tippah County jury of one count of false pretense and one count of conspiracy.

Circuit Court Judge Andrew K. Howorth sentenced Sallie to serve 10 years for false pretense to run concurrently to five years for conspiracy in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Sallie must serve the sentence day-for-day as a habitual offender. 

Sallie was additionally ordered to pay $15,518.25 in restitution to the victim and court costs.

The investigation uncovered that Sallie and two co-defendants took more than $15,000 in the scheme.

The victim believed she was helping Sallie and two other co-defendants after Sallie contacted the victim to ask for a loan that Sallie promised to repay following the settlement of a medical lawsuit. However, there was no such lawsuit or settlement. 

Ahmad Fryar, of Ripley, and Jessica Plaxico, of Booneville, were recently sentenced for false pretense and conspiracy charges associated with this case.
