  • Text size: + -

BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Cheektowaga man pleaded guilty to grand larceny on Monday after defrauding an elderly woman out of thousands of dollars.

Leslie Ralston, 32, admitted in Erie County Court that he told an 85-year-old woman squirrels were damaging her roof.

He charged the woman about $18,500 between December 2011 and January 2012 to fix the roof. There was no damage, and he did no work.

Ralston faces a prison term of 2? to 7 years when he's sentenced Thursday.
