KLAMATH FALLS, Oregon — An Oregon man has admitted he stole more than $100,000 from his blind, 94-year-old grandmother. He plead guilty to theft charges and was sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Richard Barney of Chiloquin was also ordered to pay restitution, undergo gambling-addiction treatment and spend three years on probation.

55-year-old Barney was arrested Dec. 28. Prosecutors said he got his grandmother to sign checks, and then spent the money at a casino.
