Twenty-five-year-old Raymond Wainscott of Cynthiana agreed to a five-year sentence, and to pay more than $21,000 in restitution to the woman.  Wainscott was indicted by a Harrison Co. Grand Jury on the charges back in June of 2015.

“As Attorney General, I will not tolerate those who would take advantage of our seniors,” Beshear said. “We will prosecute them to the full extent of the law.”
