A man who financially exploited his 83-year-old mother-in-law is going to jail.

David Scheifla was sentenced Wednesday to three to six years in prison. Prosecutors say the 40-year-old forged 10 checks from his mother-in-law’s bank account between September and October 2015 to fuel his drug habit.

Scheifla was able to steal $1,050 and pleaded guilty in May to a 20-count indictment involving charges of criminal possession of a forged instrument and petit larceny.

He was ordered to make restitution and to have no contact with the victim for eight years after he is released from prison.
