A cleaner who blackmailed an 85-year-old man by threatening to tell police that he had sexually assaulted her has been jailed.
Linda Thomas, 62, from Cardigan, forced the man to pay her over £10,000 and asked for a second amount after falsely accusing him of sexual assault.
His bank staff became suspicious about the large withdrawals and raised the alarm with the police.
Judge Walters said Thomas, who maintained her innocence despite the verdict of the jury, had not shown any remorse or desire to repay the money.
She was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
