TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - UPDATE: A judge sentenced Supranom "Addy" Klos to 6.5 years in prison and ordered her to pay back more than $300,000, according to a March 26 news release from the state Attorney General's office.
A Tucson hair stylist accused of gambling away most of the life savings of an elderly woman with dementia has been convicted, according to state officials.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said Supranom "Addy" Klos was found guilty on charges of fraudulent schemes, theft, credit card fraud and unlawful use of power of attorney.
Klos faces at least four years in prison.
Brnovich said Klos stole $300,000, most of the victim's savings.
"Klos was the victim's hair stylist and cultivated a friendship with the victim and her husband more than 20 years ago," Brnovich said in a news release. "The victim's husband died in 2011 and Klos was given power of attorney."
Starting in 2014, Klos began using the power of attorney to deplete the victim's account.
"In addition to gambling, the victim's savings were used to buy Klos a new car and dental implants," Brnovich said.
