Kentucky interior designer Wayne Jenkins sentenced to prison for theft

An interior designer whose clients once included the rich and famous Kentuckians was sentenced Thursday to 21 months in prison for stealing more than $285,000 from an elderly widow with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Wayne Jenkins, 66, requested through a lawyer a period of probation or to serve his sentence of house arrest, citing a serious medical condition which was not revealed in court.

But US District Judge David Hale said it would not be “just punishment”.

“The fraud in this case cannot be minimized,” he said. “It played out over several years against a vulnerable victim.”

Jenkins, who will be allowed to report to jail later, chose not to address the court.
