Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a 43-year-old man has been convicted of extorting money and property from a 75-year-old woman who thought they were in a romantic relationship.

The Livingston Parish District Attorney's Office tells The Advocate Gary Gorman, of Greenwell Springs, will be sentenced Dec. 19 after being found guilty Oct. 1 of exploitation of the infirmed.

Prosecutors say Gorman convinced his 75-year-old victim that they were in a romantic relationship and would eventually marry.

Officials say the victim, who was diagnosed with early onset dementia and depression in 2009, gave Gorman $80,000 from a reverse mortgage she took out on her home in Watson.
