Dirtbag gets jail for house theft
From the Daily News:
A Queens ex-con pleaded guilty on Friday to stealing an elderly woman's house out from under her.
Darrell Beatty, 51, pleaded guilty to criminal possession of a forged instrument for using a phony deed to swipe Jennifer Merin's Laurelton house out from under her.
As a result of the plea deal, he'll get even more free housing — it calls for him to get a year in jail.
Merin, 72, said that's not enough time.
"I'm glad he's going to jail. He deserves to go to jail but I think that the sentence was too brief," she told the Daily News after Beatty's plea. "He lived in my house for longer than he will be in jail and he'll be out on the streets again."
