A trip to Las Vegas, new clothes and maximum ATM withdrawals for a month — today a former Anchorage School District teacher pleaded guilty to stealing thousands from an elderly woman’s bank account.

Susanna Difranco admitted to wire fraud and access device fraud to illegally gain access to the woman’s bank account, court documents say. She is accused of swindling more than $70,000.

The fraud case was brought forward after the victim noticed the money was missing and she asked her bank where it went.

As part of a plea deal, Difranco agreed to pay the woman back.
