A woman was sentenced to two years in prison for fraud and money laundering in relation to the will of a Pevensey woman for which she was sole executor.

Andrea Garrick, 54, of Main Road, Icklesham, appeared before Lewes Crown Court today (November 3), for obtaining £115,000 by virtue of her position, and of money laundering the same amount.

Garrick diverted the money, left to St Michael’s Hospice in St Leonards, in the will of a 70-year-old Pevensey woman.

DC Dave Elcock said, “Andrea Garrick has been jailed for two years and the sum she stole will be sought under the Proceeds of Crime Act at a hearing in the new year.”
