A judge has issued one sentence in the case of a pair of New York City twins who were charged after they reportedly tied up and stole cash from a 85-year-old “sugar daddy” they met through a dating website that matches older, wealthier men with younger women.
According to the New York Daily News, 17-year-old Shalaine Foster, one of the twins, will serve one-and-a-third to four years in prison for her role in kidnapping and stealing from widower Paul Aronson.
Foster initially faced life in prison but was given a “youthful offender” plea deal, the Daily News explains. Her sister, Shaina Foster, dubbed the “bad twin” by Shalaine’s lawyer, has not yet received her sentence because her case is still pending.
According to the report, Shaina connected with Aronson on the website SeekingArrangement, and the Foster twins both had dinner with Aronson in October before going up to his five-story townhouse in New York City, where Aronson reportedly began to ask the pair perverted sexual questions.
According to a New York Post report, when the twins tried to leave, Aronson grabbed them. That is when the twins tied him to a coffee table and stole his credit cards and $500 in cash. Aronson was found by a friend 20 hours later. The Foster twins were charged with kidnapping, robbery, assault, burglary and grand larceny.
The judge is allowing Shalaine to finish her GED program at New York City’s Rikers Island jail before she begins serving her sentence.
