MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee prostitute will spend six years in prison for robbing a 70-year-old man in the elevator of his apartment building, and scaring him to death.
George Yensh died from a heart attack last October, right after 47-year-old Stephanie Rent accosted him. Authorities said she followed Yensh into his building to sell her sexual services. When he said no, Rent stole his wallet – and she was frisking him when he collapsed. Surveillance video showed that Rent quickly ran away. When she was arrested a few days later, she admitted robbing Yensh but she didn’t know he died. In February, Rent pleaded guilty to robbery by force. After her prison time, she must spend five years under extended supervision.
Rent has a long criminal record and a history of mental illness and substance abuse. Milwaukee County Circuit Judge David Borowski said thousands of dollars have been wasted trying to help Rent, and he called the prison term a logical step.
