Theft From Elderly Widow Earns Archbold Man Prison Time

An Arch­bold man is headed to prison for two years after plead­ing guilty to steal­ing $37,500 from an elderly Bryan widow over a five-year period. 27 year old Keith Pedigo could have had as long as a three-year sen­tence for third degree theft from an elderly per­son. IN addi­tion to the two years behind bars, Pedigo will have to pay $25,000 in resti­tu­tion to the woman when he is released. Pedigo is to report to the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio on Mon­day. If he behaves him­self while he is incar­cer­ated, Pedigo will be eli­gi­ble for parole after six months, at which time he will have to begin mak­ing those resti­tu­tion pay­ments a lit­tle early. The Bryan Times reports that the inves­ti­ga­tion began when the woman got a fore­clo­sure notice. Pedigo had been vis­it­ing her once a month, when she received her social secu­rity check, and would drive her to the bank to help her take care of her bills… or so he told her.
