Albany-- The final two suspects in the swindle of an elderly Alzheimer's patient pleaded guilty, and will go to prison.

Helen Anne Williamson and her son Sidney Daniell took more than one million dollars from accounts belonging to Ima Rude.

Just more than $100,000 was recovered for the victim. Prosecutors thought the suspects set up a foreign or hidden account for the remainder of money.

Now they say the money was squandered on luxury goods like plasma televisions and a house.

Williamson was sentenced to serve at least five years in prison, while her son was sentenced to serve at least three years.
