Prison for ex-director of retirement home A FOUR-YEAR prison sentence and €135,000 to pay in compensation – that’s the price to pay for the woman who was the former director of the Malaga ‘Nuestra Señora de Gracia’ residential home, after she was found guilty of defrauding a foreign couple of their savings. The fraudulent ex-director conned the couple into giving her power of attorney in 2003 and subsequently withdrew in excess of €4,000 from their account and arranged a mortgage on their property in order to get her hands on more funds.
