Nun Scammer on Trial for Elder Abuse


Denise D’Sant Angelo—previously convicted of felony grand theft for stealing $2,800 that donors had intended to help three nuns find housing—is finally back in court facing new charges of financial elder abuse and grand theft. D’Sant Angelo and the court heard opening remarks from Deputy District Attorney Brian Cota who alleged she told a couple in their seventies—whom she met while going door-to-door for the nuns—that she could save their longtime house that was about to go into foreclosure. She allegedly took $30,000 from them over the course of a year and a half for services never rendered, and used the money to pay her rent. She faces seven charges of financial elder abuse and grand theft, and one count of unauthorized practice of law. She faces a total of 11 years in jail.
