A Hawaii Kai woman who scammed an elderly woman of nearly $600,000 was sentenced today to 10 years in prison. Forty-four-year-old Susan Chin was convicted in April of theft and money laundering. She persuaded 86-year-old Katherine Ganeko to give her power of attorney to sell Ganeko's home. Chin took the bulk of the proceeds from the sale of Ganeko's Halawa Heights home and put it into her own bank accounts. Circuit Judge Karen Ahn ordered Chin into custody this morning to immediately begin serving her prison sentence.
