A White Plains man is headed to prison for scamming an elderly Bethlehem woman out of $7,900.
Hopeton Labeach will spend one to three years behind bars.
Labeach told the woman she had won a sweepstakes, but had to send the money to collect the prize.
Labeach then pocketed the cash for himself.
He's also been ordered to pay the victim back.
