RICHMOND, Va. -- A Richmond woman has been sentenced 10 years in federal prison for defrauding an elderly woman.

Fifty-eight-year-old Lenora Banks-Davis was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Richmond.

Court records show Banks- Davis obtained the victim's bank credit card with the promise to consolidate and pay off the victim's obligations.

Instead, Banks-Davis charged more than $13,000 for her own use without the victim's knowledge in 2009. Among the purchases were thousands of dollars in pet care and more than $700 in berry juice.
