Singer who fleeced thousands from older man gets 9 years

BRIDGEPORT  — A Connecticut gospel singer convicted of conspiring with a former minister to fleece hundreds of thousands of dollars from an elderly man’s estate has been sentenced to nine years in prison.

The Connecticut Post reports that 60-year-old Doraine Reed was sentenced last week by a judge who said the case “shocks the conscience.”
Reed, of Bridgeport, was convicted by a jury in October of multiple counts of larceny.

The jury found that Reed acted as the principal in a scheme with former pastor Robert Genevicz to take over the home and property of 88-year-old Arthur Devack of Trumbull. The 67-year-old Genevicz has pleaded guilty to larceny charges. Devack died in 2010.

Reed was originally hired to care for Devack.
