RENO, Nev. (AP) — A former worker at the former Mustang Ranch brothel outside of Reno has been sentenced to two to five years in prison for elder exploitation, embezzlement and theft.

Calling the case “horrific,” Washoe District Judge Janet Berry rejected Sharnel Silvey’s plea for probation. Prosecutors say Silvey was the caretaker for a 70-year-old Reno man who looked like a concentration camp victim when he died on his couch in his own excrement in 2008.

Silvey cleaned out his bank account of $18,000 and spent the money on herself.
