DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A North Texas woman that the police called the Sweetheart Swindler has been sentenced for her crimes.

Desiree Boltos was found guilty Thursday of cheating six elderly people out of more than $1.5 million. 

Prosecutor say Boltos cozied-up to the victims to get their trust. Now NBC-5 is reporting she's been sentenced to 85 years.

Earlier this week Boltos showed up late for her trial, so the judge revoked her bond.

She was held in custody for the rest of the trial.
